Bang & Olufsen Unveil David Lynch-Designed Speaker Collection
One of the most renowned audio brands on the planet, Bang & Olufsen, has just announced a new collaboration with the cult-classic director, screenwriter, artist, and musician David Lynch. Fusing Lynch’s artworks with four models from B&O’s innovative speaker range, the special edition collection features versions on the M5, P2, A9 and the spectacular Shape.
The Bang & Olufsen x David Lynch speaker collection fuses Speaker from B&O with Artwork from Lynch. Each speaker in the exclusive collection will adorn Lynch’s signature, as well as selected details from some of Lynch’s ‘War Between the Shapes’ and 2007 ‘Paris Suite’ artwork series.
The smallest speaker in the collection, the Beoplay P2, is the most personal and portable on offer. Featuring rich, full-bodied sounds, features include activation with a tap or a shake. The powerful Beoplay M5 features True360 Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound and seamless multi-room connectivity.
On the more exclusive side of things, the A9 is a classic multiroom speaker which comes with 480 watts of powerful sound, as well as exchangeable fabric covers and exchangeable wooden legs. The BeoSound Shape, however, is arguably the most spectacular; a set of modular wall speakers which offer immersive sound staging and a unique customisable set-up.
The Bang & Olufsen x David Lynch Beoplay M5 and Beoplay P2 will be available in limited quantities at select Bang & Olufsen stores as well as at the MoMA Design Store, and on the B&O Website. The Beoplay A9 and Beosound Shape will be available exclusively at MoMA Design Store in Soho from 10th October to 11th November as part of an immersive and interactive Bang & Olufsen pop-up inspired by imagery from David Lynch’s films.
The P2 and the M5 are priced at £175 and £700, respectively. While there’s been no price point for the A9 or Shape announced just yet, we’d expect the A9 to be at least £2,000 plus and the Shape to be somewhere above £3,000.
Last month, Bang & Olufsen unveiled the monolithic £2,900 BeoSound Edge wireless speaker which is arguably more art than audio device.
