Bang & Olufsen mark a golden 95 years

To celebrate the company’s 95th birthday on 17 November, Bang & Olufsen has unveiled the Golden Collection, a classy colourway for some of its most popular products.

Comprised of nine models, the Golden Collection features reimagined colours and materials that could be associated with warmth and lasting value: golden-hued aluminium, earth-toned textile, genuine lambskin, solid oak, and Carrara marble. 

The first product included in the new collection is the Beosound Balance. With a unique new look, it features golden-hued aluminium detailing, white kitted textile, and the elegance Carrara marble, the first time this has been used on a Bang & Olufsen product. The marble gives the speaker its uniqueness due to its organic nature, meaning no two look the same. 

The Beosound Balance is priced at £1,750 / €2,500 / $2,250.
