B&O Taps Danish Architects For The Sleek & Unique ‘Contrast Collection’

Jan 17, 2020

Dating all the way back to 1925, Bang & Olufsen has long been lauded for delivering exceptional sound quality in beautifully-designed packages. And the elite Danish electronics outfit’s latest merging of form and function is its new Contrast Collection, an eight-item range born out of a collaboration with fellow Denmark-based design firm, Norm Architects.

Largely influenced by Norm’s signature use of neutral colors and textured surfaces, the Contrast Collection is comprised of the Beoplay A1 portable Bluetooth speaker, the Beoplay H9 3rd Gen headphones, the Beosound Stage soundbar, the Beosound Edge circular wireless speaker, the Beosound Shape modular knitted wool fabric-adorned hexagonal wall speakers, the Beosound 2 conical multi-room speaker, and the Beoplay A9 AirPlay speaker — the latter two of which are offered with and without Google Assistant. Starting at $250 for the headphones and going up to $3,500 for the Beosound Edge, the collection is decked out in everything from Dark oak, to anodized aluminum in bronze, brass, or raw metal hues, plus the items are further complemented via unique finishes including sandblasted and brushed metal. The entire B&O Contrast Collection is currently available for order on the manufacturer’s website.

Purchase: $250+
