Sonos and IKEA have announced an unlikely pairing, creating what they’ve called a “music & sound” partnership. The collaboration will officially begin in 2019, but the two companies have previously worked on goods in 2015 and 2016 respectively. Björn Block of IKEA’s smart home division said the following about the forthcoming collection of goods:
“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. Together with Sonos we want to democratize 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.”
There’s no further details on what exactly the collaboration will be, but we will be sure to update you with more information when we know more. Sonos has been teaming up with several outlets of late, having recently also integrated Amazon’s Alexa system into its One Speaker.
