IKEA team up with Sonos

IKEA and Sonos have partnered to improve people's sound experience in their homes.

The furniture retail company has teamed up with the consumer electronics company to "enable many more people to create atmosphere at home with great design, music and sound".

Björn Block, Business Leader, IKEA Home smart at IKEA of Sweden, said: "When we asked people what sound they associate with their homes many people mentioned that it is music that makes a home.

"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. By teaming up with Sonos we want to combine IKEA home furnishing knowledge with Sonos' expertise within great home sound.

"At IKEA we strive to make solutions for life at home by integrating technology into our home furnishing offer that are easy to use and affordable, thereby making smart home technology accessible to the many people."

The collaboration between IKEA and Sonos will be a part of IKEA Home Smart, which started with the launch of wireless charging products for mobile phones in 2015 and then smart lighting in 2016.

Patrick Spence, CEO at Sonos, added: "At Sonos we understand the transformational power of music in the home. We believe that sound should be a considered element of home design, and together we will work with IKEA to create products and experiences that make people's home look and sound more amazing."
