Sonos has unveiled its latest wi-fi speaker, the Playbase, which is designed to act as a pedestal for your TV. It is the result of 3.5 years of work by the Sonos team in Boston, Santa Barbara and China.

In a recent event for the launch of the Playbase the company took journalists behind the red velour curtain and showed them the design process behind the product. The office in Boston is a replica of the original headquarters in Santa Barbara, company representatives told the press, which helped speed the design process.

Sonos laid out plenty of early versions at the Boston office of what was to become the Playbase including this bizarre model. It featured a bent-back section at the rear which exposed the ports and presumably increased bass response.
