The new Sonos store in New York City is interactive and diverse.

The store features a variety of brightly decorated listening pods that are tightly sealed and allow for visitors to test out the different speakers and systems that are featured in each pod. A "Wall of Sound" is the store's centerpiece and is made up of hundreds of speakers and acoustic foam -- meant to draw the eye of those passing by. The entire Sonos store was designed for optimal acoustics and its colorful displays and minimalist decor are easily visible from the storefront.

This new flagship store perfectly embodies the purpose of the company while also providing an interactive way for customers to become engaged with its products.
