Bang & Olufsen wants to dominate your living room
- Bang & Olufsen's high-end Bronze Collection of audio equipment is now available
- A range of headphones, speakers and TVs are made from bronze
- The collection celebrates avant-garde design and state-of-the-art audio quality
A showpiece design investment is a worthwhile purchase, but never an easy one.
A fancy new car, a shredded in half Banksy, an oil-and-canvas portrait of you atop a rearing horse – are all viable options, but for those looking to add a little volume to their venture would be wise to turn their gaze to pieces from the Bang & Olufsen’s Bronze Collection, which combines statement-making design with flawless audio quality.
Known as a gold-standard in cutting-edge audio tech, the Danish brand has turned to bronze for its upmarket collection of avant-garde audio systems, mixing the metal with and the woolen fabric, Kvadrat, to make some stunningly monochromatic sculptures of contemporary design.
The high-end collection includes a range of pieces including a TV, headphones and a variety of statement loudspeakers. Our pick of the bunch is the brand’s flagship home speaker the Beolab 50 (below).
The wireless, standalone loudspeaker has an adjustable acoustic lens, meaning that it can alter its sound delivery depending on its audience. For sweet spot listening, the lens contracts and sends a direct sound beam towards you, whereas, when you have a house full of guests, the lens opens up for a room-filling performance.
Each model comes with top-of-the-range sound quality and enough creative aesthetic kudos to impress even the most judgmental of house guests.
