To mark the 90th year of the Bang & Olufsen (B&O), the audio and visual specialist has reworked six of its most iconic contemporary designs using rose golden aluminium and walnut.

The BeoLab 18 speaker — inspired by the BeoLab 8000 winner of the International CES Best of Innovation 2014 award for ‘High Performance Home Audio/Video’ (a review of CES 2015 features in SuperyachtDesign, Issue 23) — is a wireless speaker that casts its sound evenly throughout a room using its 180-degree horizontal arc. The special edition BeoLab 18 has a rose golden aluminium cabinet and acoustic lens on the top, a walnut lamella front and a black cast iron floor base.

The BeoPlay A9 is a one-point music system that connects wirelessly to any digital music source from all major devices (mobile, desktop or tablet). Built in access to Spotify Connect, Deezer amd Tunein also gives you access to their prolific music libraries. The special edition comes with a black rear casing, a rose golden aluminium ring, an iron-grey front cloth and crafted walnut legs. Both editions can be mounted onto a wall.

Crafted from a single, extruded piece of aluminium the BeoReomte One has a weighted ergonomic design and provides functional, intuitive access to the B&O interface. MyButtons give one-touch access to your favourite TV channels, custom setups and Internet and radio channels.


Made from aluminium and leather the BeoPlay H6 headphones aim to deliver a sense of ‘everyday luxury’. The material selection also lends itself nicely to authentic ageing. Wear and tear creates a brushed-metal and soft, distressed leather look. The H6 offers a balanced sound performance with a focus on a clear midrange.
