The Danish company Bang & Olufsen is known for its impeccable approach to creating innovative devices for the home, as well as its collaboration with famous British car manufacturer Aston Martin. B&O Play, the music system division of Bang & Olufsen, recently released the BeoPlay A9, a one-point music system designed and crafted as a timeless piece of furniture. The A9 is a future design icon, as it looks simple and clean, with a careful selection of materials and great attention to detail, which guarantee that it’ll never become boring or outdated.
The A9 can be freestanding, on three wooden legs, or hanged directly on the wall. The round shape and clean facade make it look good from all angles, no matter where you decide to place it. Even when not in use, this music system will be a stylish addition to your home.
This A9 is not only a statement in design, but the sound is mind-blowing from any position, and the sound adaption switch ensures that the sound always remains beautiful. The design goes beyond looks, too, as details make the design. Details such as the rear handle that functions both as holder for the wall bracket and a bass port. The legs are available in oak, maple, or walnut, and the custom-designed covers by Kvadrat (the Danish reference in textiles) can be light grey, dark grey, dark rose, or dusty blue. The whole pattern under the speaker fabric is based on the Fibonacci system and the perforation at the back is arranged following a rhythmical circular pattern.
An innovative user interface, with controls on the device and wirelessly accessible, enables the most flexible use possible. Swipe your hand across the top to turn the volume up or down. Let your hand rest on the top sensor for a few seconds and the sound mutes. The A9 supports Spotify, TuneIn, and Deezer, and has an iPhone connector and USB port, among other features.
