Bang & Olufsen has introduced a wall-mounted Decorative Wireless Speakers system called BeoSound Shape. The idea of B&O is to combine the wireless speakers into a wall decor art, giving the owner an identity. It has a customizable design and integrated noise dampers for improved room acoustics.
BeoSound Shape can be customised to match and elevate any living space. It has a modular tile concept design based on a single geometric shape, the hexagon. Each tile serves a function as either speaker, amplifier or acoustic damper and can be pieced together in endless combinations and sizes, to serve rooms both big and small.
This new B&O Decorative Bluetooth Speakers system can combine up to 44 speakers with 11 amplifiers controlled via a central module. Each speaker system with amplifier (4 speakers per amplifier) is wirelessly connected via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Apple AirPlay and Google Cast support, compatible with B & O multi-room music playback.
Additionally, it comes with a high quality fabric covers, including exclusive wool fabrics from Kvadrat. No two configurations are likely to be the same, but each one will undoubtedly leave a lasting visual imprint on every wall and every room. The BeoSound Shape Decorative wall Speakers system design comes from Øivind Alexander Slaatto, the Danish designer known for BeoPlay A9.
Each speaker in the BeoSound Shape decorative speakers weighs 1.9 kg (0.4 kg in decorative fabric) with a structure of 3/4″ Tweeter and 5 + 1/4″ woofer. 8x 80 Watt amplifier with similar design can pull 4 speakers at the same time. Each BeoSound speaker or amplifier has a hexagonal design, size is 36.4 x 32 cm and wall thickness about 11.1 cm. A total of 10 colors are available for the BeoSound Shape decorative speakers system.
B&O has not announced the BeoSound Shape price yet, but it certainly will not be easy for the average user.
