Lot Details

Description

This one-of-a-kind piece is distinguished by its elegant tan hue that radiates a warm, honeyed glow. To create this rich color, the aluminium body was submerged in an acid bath to give it a uniformly matte finish and then each component was individually dyed — an intricate process that required a day-long takeover of Bang & Olufsen’s state-of-the-art anodizing plant. With style and smarts in equal measure, this unique BeoSound 1 would make an impressive addition to the collections of music-lovers and aesthetes alike. 


BeoSound 1’s striking design lends itself to being displayed like a modernist sculpture. And thanks to its minimal profile and built-in power source, BeoSound 1 is easily transported between rooms and outdoors. Moreover, every detail of the speaker’s form is in service of providing exceptionally nuanced sound performance: the conical body hovers above the ground, allowing bass notes to emanate from below; the opening toward the top houses an acoustic lens that produces remarkably even, 360-degree sound distribution. The speaker is controlled by a discreet panel located on the crown that features a built-in proximity sensor to instantly adjust the interface based on the direction from which one approaches it. This innovative controller is incredibly intuitive — one simply turns the wheel to adjust the volume or swipes and taps its touch-sensitive surface to skip tracks, pause or play. 


- Compatible with all leading wireless technologies, including Chromecast built-in, AirPlay, Bluetooth, Spotify Connect, and DNLA

- Can function as a stand-alone speaker or be integrated into a full-home audio system with BeoLink Multiroom technology

- Engraved with “1/1”, indicating that it is a one-of-a-kind edition
