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.
Custom wallpaper with playful designs adorn the interiors of each listening room, alongside hand woven rugs, full bookshelves, and custom furniture from Partners & Spade.
每个Sonos聆听室都装饰有自己的定制墙纸设计，包括伦敦的法国插画家Thibaud Herem的建筑效果图和素描;纽约装饰画家马克·张伯伦手绘经典图案;纽约漫画家马克·斯塔马提(Mark Stamaty)为SoHo区Sonos商店定制的插画。
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.

▲没有菲尔·斯佩克特(Phil Spector)，但嘻哈政治家里克·鲁宾(Rick Rubin)却以一种平静的状态占据了突出地位。
No Phil Spector, but hip-hop statesman Rick Rubin is prominently represented in a state of peaceful repose.
Each of the Listening Rooms was custom-built with four layers of acoustic sheet rock and a 2,000-lb, steel-framed glass door to ensure sounds are contained within each small space. Beveled glass and a parallel wall that alternates absorptive and reflective materials also work together to properly create the ultimate sound quality within each room.
