Bang & Olufsen sets the fashion with Beosound Edge

Bang & Olufsen has collaborated with fashion house, Saint Laurent on its latest speaker, Beosound Edge.

Creative director of Saint Laurent, Anthony Vaccerello curated the new limited-edition speaker, which resembles a contemporary art piece with a minimal design and a compact circular aluminium frame exterior.

When approached, the home speaker’s interface lights up thanks to the proximity sensors. It is calibrated to detect the force of your touch when adjusting the volume as you roll the speaker back and forth. The touch sensitive aluminium surface allows users to start, stop and change tracks with a tap.

Three directional sound settings are on offer for three different listening experiences, including the True360 omnidirectional mode which will fill the entire room with sound. The innovative Active Bass Port design allows Beosound Edge to deliver high levels of bass.

Beosound Edge is customised in a marble print with a matt black aluminium finish.

The limited-edition Bang & Olufsen x Saint Laurent Beosound Edge will be available in the Rive Droite stores in Los Angeles and Paris as well as online, priced at £5,225 / $7,500.
