Sonos and their multi-room audio speakers and systems have earned a reputation for being easy to setup and offering performance without the lag or quality degradation of other multi-room and speaker systems. Now Sonos is looking to expand their brand presence with their first store location – a continuation of their commitment to design recently exhibited within their Boston offices. This new 4,200 square-foot store situates their complete product line of audio components inside “tiny homes”, all designed to simulate a kitchen, living room, and study.
Each Sonos Listening Room is adorned with its own custom wallpaper design, including architectural renderings and sketches by London-based French illustrator Thibaud Herem; hand-painted classic patterns by New York-based decorative painter Mark Chamberlain; and a custom illustration of the Sonos store’s home in SoHo by New York cartoonist Mark Stamaty.
Each of the 10-by-12-foot Listening Rooms are acoustically tuned to give visitors a fully optimized experience, with an opportunity to try the Sonos systems hands-on through a self-guided, multi-room listening walk-thru that closely mimics sound within the home.
Additional details surrounding these listening rooms further expands upon a “wall of sound” theme represented by walls literally comprised of speakers, albums, cassette tapes, and music ‘zines.
Located at 101 Greene Street (between Prince and Spring Streets), the Sonos store opens on Tuesday, July 19th at noon. The next time we’re in NYC, we’re definitely dropping in to soak in the audio and visual stimulation offered inside these Listening Rooms.
