Happy Birthday to the Sonos store!

Happy Birthday to the Sonos store!

Last weekend, our flagship store in New York turned one and some of the hottest names in music came out to help us celebrate. Partnering with the good folks at Pitchfork, we hosted a weekend-long radio broadcast, live from the Greene Street store – cramming the likes of Flatbush Zombies, Alvvays and DJ Shadow into our state-of-the-art listening rooms. And if this sounds like no ordinary first…

Hate photos. Love Vicky Grout.

Hate photos. Love Vicky Grout.

One prevailing theme throughout Vicky Grout's photos is capturing off-guard moments. On surface-level, grime exhibits hype, often violent storytelling, and guarded mistrust of glossy London, but the genre itself has distinct humour, self-awareness, warmth, and self-deprecation.

Five Rooms, Five Designers: Sight Unseen at 101G

Five Rooms, Five Designers: Sight Unseen at 101G

When we first started imagining the space in the Sonos flagship store, we knew there was no way we could limit ourselves to just one design approach. We wanted the in-store listening experience to be 100% true to the home experience—since every home looks and feels so different.

Philip Glass on Listening (and Composing) at 80

Philip Glass on Listening (and Composing) at 80

Philip Glass opens his own door. He ushers me into the front room of his East Village brownstone — busy, unkempt and fully lived-in — to drop my coat off and wait a minute.

Causes and Conditions of The Silent Home

Causes and Conditions of The Silent Home

A Silent Home is a place where the absence of music exacerbates the stress and pressures of modern life. A home where people live side-by-side but not together. It is a problem that affects more than two thirds of our homes. Last year, we conducted an experiment to see if listening to music out loud at home could affect relationships. We showed that homes filled with music were happier, closer,…
