Listen to the sound of IKEA and Sonos
Coming into a room and putting on music immediately transforms the space. What was static becomes warm and comfortable in an instant. Knowing the profound effect of sound on our experience of home, IKEA has entered the exciting world of audio in collaboration with Sonos. With prices, democratized. Stay tuned for the release of SYMFONISK in August.
Shine a new light on sound
Lamp and WiFi speaker at the same time, the new SYMFONISK table lamp emits light as well as high-quality sound.
“We knew from the start that we wanted to challenge the traditional high-tech aesthetics. The lamp-speaker partly springs from the idea of the fireplace – one single piece that spreads warm light as well as sound”, says IKEA designer Iina Vuorivirta.
Fill your home with music
The lamp and bookshelf speaker can be used individually or grouped together. They seamlessly connect to all other Sonos speakers with WiFi through the Sonos app. Pair two for stereo separation, and use them for a home theatre experience.
An uncompromising collaboration between IKEA and Sonos
At IKEA, we’re great at home furnishing – but new to sound. Sonos, on the other hand, has an in-depth audio knowledge and wants to find new ways to make sound blend into the home.
So, in many ways we’re a perfect match. Combining the best of our two worlds we've democratized the home sound system and created new products we could not have imagined on our own.
Got questions? That’s music to our ears
There must be lots of things you want to ask about SYMFONISK, so we've got lots of answers for you.
What is the SYMFONISK range?
The first products in the SYMFONISK range are a WiFi bookshelf speaker and an all-new table lamp with WiFi speaker.
Will there be more products in this range?
We can’t comment on future plans or roadmap, however the SYMFONISK family is a fully-functioning part of the Sonos system and a part of both companies’ long-term planning.
When will these products become available?
Products resulting from the collaboration between IKEA and Sonos will be launched starting August 2019. The rollout for –LOCAL MARKET- is -EXPECTED LOCAL ROLLOUT DATE-.
Where can I buy them?
You will be able to buy SYMFONISK directly from IKEA online and at IKEA stores.
Can I buy them directly from Sonos?
No, the SYMFONISK family of speakers is only available from IKEA.
How will a SYMFONISK speaker differ from a regular Sonos speaker?
The SYMFONISK range are full members of the Sonos family, controlled using the Sonos app, directly from select partner apps like Spotify and Deezer, and also AirPlay 2. The table lamp speaker has the same sound profile as Play:1 and Sonos One, and the bookshelf speaker delivers a lot of value – it will sound great for the many people.
Will SYMFONISK be voice-enabled?
The SYMFONISK speakers do not have integrated microphones and are therefore not voice-enabled directly. Because SYMFONISK is a part of the Sonos system, you will of course be able to control this speaker using other voice enabled products such as a Sonos One, Sonos Beam or other Alexa (and soon Google Assistant) enabled products.
Will a SYMFONISK speaker and a regular Sonos speaker be able to connect with each other?
Absolutely. All SYMFONISK and Sonos speakers will work perfectly together as part of the Sonos sound system – and can be controlled using the Sonos app.
You can even pair-up either speaker in the SYMFONISK range to use as rears in a home theatre setup.
What is the integration with light and when will it be available?
While the collaboration between Sonos and IKEA aims to bring light and sound together, at this point we can’t comment on the scope or the timeline of this integration.
Why doesn't it have Bluetooth?
Rather than operating as a single speaker (tethered to your phone) the Sonos system works over your home’s wireless network to deliver uninterrupted, high-quality streaming music all around the home. You, and anyone connected to your home WiFi network, can control one speaker or many all around the home, using the Sonos app, which gives you access to major streaming services, podcasts, audiobooks, radio and much more.
Can the SYMFONISK speakers be paired to create a stereo pair?
Yes, any two of the same speaker type can be paired to create a stereo pair. They can also be used as rears for a 5.0/5.1 home theatre system.
Will SYMFONISK products receive all Sonos updates and features?
Yes, SYMFONISK products will receive Sonos updates and new features for years to come, unless the feature is tied to specific hardware not included in SYMFONISK (i.e. voice).
