Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Speaker Gets a Celestial Revamp

By Paul Joseph

The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A9 speaker has been given a celestial revamp thanks to acclaimed artist Daniel Arsham.

The House by Daniel Arsham has taken over the Corner Shop space at Selfridges department store this Christmas, and these redesigned special edition speakers are taking centre stage.

The A9 speaker has been augmented by the image of a blue moon taken from an original painting by Arsham. The moon image was inspired by Arsham’s fascination with space and is merged into the speaker’s design, accompanied by white stained oak legs and a silver-tone anodised aluminium ring.

The speaker works by gently sliding your hand across its surface to adjust the volume and tapping it to skip, play and pause. It features a range of new innovations and design updates including Google Assistant that allows users to instruct the speaker by the sound of their voice.

Furthermore, Active Room Compensation is billed as delivering a flawless audio experience in every room of your house.

The limited-edition Beoplay A9 is available exclusively at The House by Daniel Arsham at The Corner Shop in Selfridges, London and online.

The House of Daniel Arsham launched on 21 October as part of the Selfridges’ seasonal three-month Future Fantasy creative campaign.

Founded in Denmark in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, Bang & Olufsen has grown to become one of the world’s most renowned designers of high-end audio products, television sets and telephones.
