IKEA’s New Outdoor LED Lamp Connects to Spotify

IKEA’s has unveiled the Vappeby Bluetooth speaker with a Spotify Tap button that doubles as an outdoor lamp. With IP65 dust and water splash resistance, it’s designed to illuminate outdoor parties, barbecues, etc., with LED light while delivering 360 sound.

When you press the Spotify Tap button, it will start streaming from wherever you left off, and another press will play a different recommendation based on your Spotify history. The speaker also works with other streaming services or media stored on your smartphone or another connected device.The Bluetooth speaker offers up to 12 hours of music streaming, presumably without the light turned on. It charges via USB-C with a cable, but not a charger, included in the package. The lamp offers two LED light modes and has a grip and lantern-like design.

Spotify Tap was unveiled in September last year and was available at launch on Bluetooth headphones from Samsung, Microsoft Surface, Bose, Skullcandy, and Jabra. They have a range of Vappeby Bluetooth speakers priced from $25 to $90. It also offers the Symfonisk bookshelf speaker built in collaboration with Sonos, available for €99 in Europe only.

The new model is now available to order for $65 in blue or grey, though as mentioned, the USB power adapter is sold separately. The company said that the Bluetooth speaker is an important step on IKEA’s journey to democratize music which will increase user experience, lower the thresholds and make music and light easily accessible
