Bang & Olufsen’s artistically ambitious wireless speaker range has gained a new member. The Beosound Balance, designed in collaboration with Benjamin Hubert from British design agency Layer, has been ‘inspired by interior objects’.
With its 38cm-tall, upright shape, oak wood base and cylindrical, knitted-clothed top (in black or natural finishes), it could easily pass as a lamp.
Of course, what lies beneath is everything you’d expect from a B&O speaker: seven drivers with beam-forming technology, some clever digital processing, and a discreet touch interface.
Swipe around the circular, aluminium top plate to control volume, or touch the icons to change tracks, pause playback or select presets. When you approach the speaker, the interface automatically lights up, before dimming again when you walk away.
While the base contains an upward-firing woofer, the upper body houses a downward-firing bass driver, three midrange drivers and a pair of tweeters
