Bang & Olufsen, the Danish connoisseur of high end home design and audio, hosted a fabulous event in sizeable fashion last week at the Kvadrat in Shoreditch, to unveil the largest ever single installation of the highly coveted BeoSound Shape, designed by the remarkable Oivind Slaatto.
Kvadrat, Bang & Olufsen’s textile partner, had its own version of the BeoSound Shape made personally for its London showroom – modern, airy and industrial – the perfect place for showing off the delicately-considered angles of the Shape’s design.
To celebrate this mammoth marvel, Bang & Olufsen and Little Red Rooster invited various media from the design, hospitality, tech and interior sectors, as well as B&O’s top-tier enterprise contacts, sales partners, retailers and stockists.
It was a hugely successful evening, with over 100 guests in attendance. The audience were treated to a succession of talks from both Bang & Olufsen’s global sales director and Kvadrat’s County Director.
We also got to hear from Oivind Slaatto, the designer of the BeoSound Shape, who talked to the audience about the various inspirations and design concepts that lead to the making of this rather unique speaker. Skiing and the light and shadow on snow, mathematics and the visible circles of acoustics all played a part in creating Slaato’s vision.
Bang & Olufsen’s Installation will be on show at Kvadrat’s Showroom until late August. If you want to check it out for yourself, head to 10 Shepherdess Walk, Hoxton, London N1 7LB.
