Sonos and IKEA created a table lamp that doubles as a speaker

Way back in 2017, Sonos announced that it was partnering with IKEA to create a new series of products that combined Sonos speakers with IKEA-designed furniture. These products fall under the SYMFONISK brand, and on April 8, Sonos unveiled its latest entry for it — a table lamp.

Featuring the wonderful name of "SYMFONISK table lamp with WiFi speaker", the lamp features a really striking design. There's what appears to be a plastic base, a fabric cover surrounding the speaker portion, and the lampshade and bulb at the top. It doesn't look like any table lamp I've ever seen before, but I'm really digging its aesthetic.

Per Iina Vuorivirta, a designer of the lamp:

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.

If you're interested, the lamp has a price of $179/€179. It's joining the previously announced SYMFONISK book-shelf with WiFi speaker (pictured above) which has been confirmed to cost $99/€99.95. Both the table lamp and book-shelf work like any other Sonos product, meaning they're controlled via the Sonos app and can be grouped with other Sonos speakers (opens in new tab).

Sonos Beam review: Raising the sound bar

  • Actually cool. Can these be set up as a 5.1 surround sound home theater system?
  • Great idea! I would have bought a Sonos speaker by now if only I could connect via Bluetooth.
  • This looks great. I like the look of the lamp and the idea of the embedded speaker. I'm not interested in the Sonos ecosystem, thought, but I'd still consider the purchase. Anyone know if the lamp is smart? In other words, can I say, "Alexa, turn off the light," and have the light turn off but the speaker powered?
