Bang & Olufsen
Last week we (the CIID/DKDS Pilot Year) visited a bunch of different companies. One of them was Bang & Olufsen, makers of extraordinary hi-fi equipment. Sorry for being such a geek, but I really love the old Bang & Olufsen designs. These five are my favourites (actually the MX tv should be here as well, but I didn’t get any shots of it):
And as a small bonus, a close-up of the Beosound 5 controls and the Beo 5 remote – extremely well-engineered aluminum parts. Maybe a bit over-engineered actually?
Here’s the Beo 5 remote. I still don’t know what I think about the design though.
And finally: B&O’s office and factory buildings are in general a bit boring, but the newest one was actually quite interesting. Here’s a couple of shots from the inside.
You can see a lot more photos from our industry visits in my Flickr gallery.
