When two brands as big as IKEA and Sonos decide to pair up on a collaboration, heads are likely to turn. That goes double when it turns out that their project has already garnered a Red Dot Design Award. And that’s exactly the case with the Symfonisk Bookshelf Speaker you see before you.

While it won’t officially be revealed until April 9th with a release date tentatively set for August, our limited look at the Symfonisk has unveiled some interesting details. For starters, it’s clear that this device will have some measure of online connectivity — meaning it will also likely have smart features, a measure of music streaming capacity, and will probably come with an included app so you can control it from your phone. It’s also designed both to function as a standalone desktop speaker or can be mounted to a wall and used as a landing for other, smaller items — your everyday carry, perhaps. And if it’s intended as another part of IKEA’s growing catalog of home audio devices, we can also anticipate it fitting into a larger home audio ecosystem. Of course, we’ll just have to wait to find out more.
