Sonos, arguably the world’s leading manufacturer and provider of wireless speakers, yesterday announced the upcoming availability of their flagship Sonos One speaker in a trio of new colours.
The newly colourful versions of the speaker – red, yellow and green versions will be available – are expected to go on sale later in the year, after initially being launched at the upcoming Design week in Milan. Pink and grey versions of the Sonos One will be shown off in Milan, too, but those colours are not due to be made available to the public.
Supplementing the existing black and white Sonos One alternatives, the newly colourful speakers are the result of a partnership between Sonos and Danish design brand HAY, explaining why the line is named the HAY Sonos One Limited Edition Collection.
As to why the new colours of speaker have been developed and are to be put on sale, Hay’s co-founder Mette Hay explained:
‘Color [sic] is one of the most important tools in the design process, and it was very important we didn’t just create a color [sic] scale that looked beautiful… Colors [sic] can hide completely and disappear or provide contrast. These speakers deserve to be treated like furniture; strong, independent objects that can blend in or stand out.’
The Hay Sonos One Limited Edition Collection is expected to go on sale for a limited time from September of this year at a price of £229 per speaker.
