The Sonos Listening Library: Where sound and design meet

Posted on May 18th, 2012 by Sonos Staff in Events, Music In Culture, Sonos Studio

Joining in on Cool Hunting’s takeover of the Standard Hotel, East Village, we have transformed and tuned the Sonos Listening Library as part of the annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) and Noho Design Week. The intersection between the interior of the room and the sound you explore as you move through the space challenges the way we think about design and technology together—creating an acoustically and aesthetically friendly environment to listen to music. Similar to the newly created Sonos Studio, a listening-focused gallery in the heart of Los Angeles, the Listening Library’s debut at New York’s design week includes modifications according to acoustic principles such as reflection, absorption, and diffusion to create an acoustically refined environment for listening.

In the center of the room hangs the Sonos Soundalier. Created by Kiel Mead and Lindsey Adelman, the piece utilizes Adelman’s iconic iron chandeliers with PLAY:3 wireless speakers in the place of  lights. The sound creates an unparalleled, 360-degree music listening experience.

Come check out the Sonos Listening Library and all that design and music has to offer during out panel discussion Friday at 5:00 PM (EST) on the first floor of the Standard Hotel, East Village. Moderated by Dwell and Architizer, the panel will explore the connection between interior, furniture design, and acoustics. The Sonos team will discuss the concept, design, and build of the newly completed Sonos Studio.
