Sonos and IKEA collaborate to create 'future home sound experiences'

Sonos kit could soon get a lot cheaper – thanks to new IKEA partnership

On Wednesday, Ikea announced a collaboration with Sonos, the audio company.

"Together with Sonos we want to democratise music and sound in the home, and we want to create products designed for how people listen together at home", said Ikea Home smart business leader Björn Block. The wording of the announcement suggests the initiative is presently only aimed at delivering a single product series two years from now and the firms haven't committed to any follow-ups as they're presumably waiting to see how consumers will respond to their first-generation offerings. 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.

IKEA has announced that is now working with Sonos on a line of products dedicated to 'future home sound experiences, ' to be launched in 2019.
