Bang & Olufsen are known for creating stunning looking devices that provide as much function as they form and they have now taken that approach and applied it to create the BeoPlay A1. Its sleek shape and tactile design is such that it allows BeoPlay A1 to be played on almost any surface - take it with you where you want to go, or grab the full-grain leather strap and hang it at work or in your home.
Packing a punch way beyond its size, BeoPlay A1 is crafted utilising superior materials, including sleek, matte anodised aluminium, and will spread the Bang & Olufsen signature sound to the entire room, delivering a new level of power and portability. As with all of Bang & Olufsen products, the synergy between form and function is the guiding beacon throughout the entire design process.
“The physical form of BeoPlay A1 is the result of a meticulous design process geared towards maximising portability, while at the same time giving a solid physical platform for category-breaking sound performance. The design inspiration was to produce a speaker that would easily fit in a bag or pocket. That’s why there are no protruding buttons or legs to snag or to snap off, the surface of BeoPlayA1 is completely smooth and robust enough to take the bumps and scrapes that are part and parcel of a life on the move,”said Cecilie Manz, award-winning Bang & Olufsen Designer, responsible for the creation of BeoPlay A1.
