Beosound Balance—a recently debuted collaboration

from British cross-disciplinary creative agency Layer and Bang & Olufsen—isn’t just a sound system; it’s also a conversation piece. Marking the firms’ first partnership, Beosound Balance boasts high-end touch- and voice-activated technology, while its refined shape recalls minimalist sculpture.

Supported on a timber base, the speaker’s cylindrical sound system is wrapped in black or natural Kvadrat textiles typically used for interior upholstery. In the age of technologically integrated household accessories, Beosound Balance holds true to its name by blurring the line between high-end electronic device and elegant objet d’art.
