Just when you thought Ikea’s offerings largely amounted to assembly-required furniture designed to challenge you even when you’re sober, they’ve revealed a new product born from their partnership with audio product manufacturer Sonos in the form of the Symfonisk bookshelf speaker. Upon first glance, though it’s certainly handsome in its own right, it looks conventionally rectangular, albeit a bit longer than a typical small speaker. But turn it on its side, and it can act as a wall-mounted nightstand or shelf. In fact, the Symfonisk has already won a 2019 RED Dot award. Though material and capability details have yet to be revealed, preliminary photos reveal different shapes from rounded to straight edges, as well as a range of colors will be available. The Symfonisk will be officially unveiled on April 9th, and full specs and pricing are forthcoming. The best part? There’s nothing to put together.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
