bang & olufsen harmonies collection grows ecosystem of wireless speakers

merging their renown minimalist design with a bold statement of natural green color, bang & olufsen’s ‘harmonies’ collection combines and covers a curated selection of five wireless speakers in a lush shade. as home interiors become bolder and more colorful, their latest adaption brings new life to existing products and showcases their versatility as they further suit modern living spaces, even more so than ever before. their organic infantry green tone accentuates this trend, offering shades that change from golden glimmers to gratifying greens, depending on the viewer’s perspective, reflections and light intensities.

at bang & olufsen we continuously absorb trends, process them and make our own distinct interpretations of them. we always strive to create something both new and timeless. in this case, we developed our own tone of green with a monochromathic look through all the different materials, visually tying together the products‘, says kresten bjørn krab-bjerre, concept manager at bang & olufsen.

as ‘naturally, everything is connected’ according to bang & olufsen, the ‘harmonies’ collection plants nature inside with an impression of an indoor urban garden. it groups the ‘beosound 1’, ‘beosound 2’, ‘beoplay A9’, ‘beoplay M5’ and the ‘beosound 35’ in a configuration of diverse shapes and sizes that fit any need or setting desired by the user. their range of materials detail unique alternations of the infantry green tone, with the gleam reflections of the anodized aluminum on the ‘besound 1’, ‘2’ and ‘35’, and both the green and earthy brown appearance of the kvadrat fabric that grows on the ‘A9’ and ‘M5’.

the besound 35 features a black aluminum table stand, brass tone aluminum side and back, and a fabric front



the limited edition family draws parallels with nature and music, where different elements form a pleasing pairing, as well as a complete ecosystem. they are not only aesthetically aligned but also perform technologically in perfect symbiosis. the wireless speaker systems all offer multiroom functionality, which enables the devices to play contrasting music in disparate rooms or alternatively, seamlessly connect to perform in sync to one another. controlled via mobile application and streams, this excellent sound performance is delivered with optimum connectivity as they can be placed wherever in the home environment.
