The annual international furniture exhibition Salone del Mobile Milan is in full swing right now, and many brands and designers seize this opportunity to reveal their latest products. Danish company Bang & Olufsen is one of them – It just launched a sound system made of hexagonal speakers and acoustic panels that can be arranged in different combinations.
The wireless wall-mounted panels from the BeoSound Shape system can play or boost sound, or absorb noise to improve indoor acoustics in home or office environments. Modular and easily customizable, it allows users to create their own patterns and colour arrangements. Even the sound performance can be tailored, as each tile serves a function as either speaker, amplifier or acoustic damper. The sound system requires a minimum of six tiles, but can easily be scaled up.
The acoustics are so good and realistic, that Bang & Olufsen calls it a “band on the wall”.
Covered in wool fabric by renowned Danish textile brand Kvadrat, the panels are available in beautiful colours such as Parisian night blue, Brazilian clay, moss green, wild dove grey, black, and more.
BeoSound Shape will be available in August 2017, and will costs around €4,000 for a standard set-up.
It looks like a piece of art, right?
