IKEA and Sonos Form Double Act

IKEA and Sonos Form Double Act”

Furniture designer and retailer Ikea has announced a partnership with Sonos to create new products in the future.

IKEA has announced plans to work with Sonos to make sound systems for the home.

Sound is important in the home. But we'd hazard a guess they'll involve Sonos speakers integrated into things like table lamps and entertainment units, after all IKEA has already put wireless charging pads into some of its furniture, so adding audio tech into the mix shouldn't be too hard.

The partnership is intriguing for several reasons.

Sonos and Ikea are teasing a collaboration today which could bring Sonos speakers to Ikea furniture. The company provided no more details about what it will be working on and when the first products may be expected to hit the market.

Ikea has started to venture into the smart home market, introducing wireless charging solutions for mobile devices in 2015, and selling smart lighting solutions since past year.

Ikea recently moved into the smart home sector with intelligent lighting and other connected home gadgets, but this latest collaboration could see the brand integrate Sonos technology into its home furnishings and/or smart home platforms. Sonos has had its products in a number of retail stores for years, including Apple Stores.
