    Life Space UX is a concept that provides sensory impact using light, sound and vision applied in unexpected ways. It is defined by delivering unique experiences and facilitating new ways to transform your living space.

    The sleek Glass Sound Speaker fills every corner of your living space with warm illumination and crystal clear sound made possible through its organic glass. An LED housed within the cylinder combines ambient light with music. The vibration of the organic glassis close to that of human vocal chords and creates a uniquely lifelike sound experience. The Glass Sound Speaker will have an RRP of £800.

    The Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector creates a new viewing experience at home, the 10cm cubic projector, despite its compact size is capable of throwing up to an 80” image onto table, wall or any other surface you want to bring to life. The projector will have an RRP of £1,000 and can be elevated with the use of a separate floor stand, RRP £200.

    To create a unique experience for visitors to the Sony booth at designjunction the Sony team will be working with the design team at The Conran Shop to create scenarios that brings the Life Space UX to life on the Sony booth. The booth will include both the Glass Sound Speaker and the Portable Ultra Short Throw projector and demonstrate in real life situations how both products can create unique experiences for consumers and transforming their living rooms. The Sony Life Space UX booth will be located at designjunction Cubitt House # B11, King’s Cross, London.

    “Partnering with The Conran Shop gives Sony a great opportunity to showcase the Life Space UX to the home interior savvy audience and allows us to perfectly demonstrate the concept of experiencing moments of ambience in the home. We are excited to see the products in The Conran Shop, and also hear feedback from customers of The Conran Shop.” said Hiroshi Saito, General Manager, TS Business Planning office.
