IKEA Lamps Hacked into Flexible Speaker Mounts

By Jason Fitzpatrick on November 15th, 2011

This simple hack combines the swing arms of two IKEA work lamps with a set of computer speakers for flexible and easily adjustable sound.

IKEAHackers reader Bill Dwyer wanted an easy way to get the speakers off his desk but still be able to easily adjust them. By hacking apart two IKEA work lamps (he removed the light assembly and snipped the wires off) he was able to attach his computer speakers to the arms and, in the process, get them off the desk. The arms make it super simple to adjust the speakers exactly where he wants them, including towards other parts of his office/apartment.
