IKEA and Sonos have officially confirmed that their first collaboration will be available in select Australian IKEA stores later this year.

Tad Toulis, Vice President of Design at Sonos says “Sound is a powerful part of our identity – whether it’s hearing your baby’s laughter or listening to that 80s hit your mum loved, it is a deeply emotional part of all our lives.”

According to Toulis, “This partnership has always been about our two companies’ shared passion, values and knowledge. IKEA and Sonos recognize the importance of great sound and its potential to positively affect life at home for the many people. We set out to create products neither of us would or could develop independently. To this end, since music and light are both instrumental in creating a sense of place, we developed a product that can deliver both – the SYMFONISK lamp speaker”.

The current SYMFONISK range consists of two products: a lamp speaker and book-shelf speaker. Both products are compatible with Sonos own product range and can be controlled through the Sonos app.

“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”, says Iina Vuorivirta, one of the designers of SYMFONISK lamp-speaker at IKEA of Sweden.

Local Australian pricing for the IKEA SYMFONISK range has yet to be confirmed.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
