The week, Sonos announced a new partnership with Danish design company HAY that will see the Sonos One speaker be made available in several new, more-expensive color options. The HAY Sonos One Limited Edition Collection takes the same great-sounding intelligent speaker and throws a few new colors at it—red, green, and yellow—direct from HAY’s 2018 palette.
“Our speakers aren’t designed to claim attention but to blend naturally into their surroundings,” Sonos VP of Design Tad Toulis said in a statement. And even with the addition of new nontraditional Sonos colors, the speakers still manage to keep their subtle aesthetic.
Of the three new colors, red certainly has the most pop, but the matte-esque finish of the speaker means the colors don’t really distract from their surroundings. There’s no shine to these speakers, which isn’t a bad thing, because they do most of their talking through the crisp sound profile—or when you activate Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant and she’s literally talking back to you.
