Limited edition products provide an opportunity for Sonos to explore variations to the design of their speakers, as well as different stories around those designs. They asked Bruce Mau Design to create small books to accompany two separate limited editions of their most popular product. ‘Tone’, a single color, matte finished version of their Play:1 speaker in black and white, was meant to celebrate product design that recedes, ensuring that music experience come first. ‘Born in Blue’, a Play:1 washed in gradient color, was a tribute to Blue Note Records on their 75th Anniversary. I designed both books with the help of Creative Director Laura Stein and a small team at Sonos.
