Bang & Olufsen’s new Contrast Collection created with Norm Architects is an exploration of material combinations and tactile surfaces
Also presenting a new sound transparent wool fabric with textile company Kvadrat.
The limited eight-piece collection is taking pleasure in difference — between minimal and expressive, rough and smooth, light and dark, silence and loudness, harmony and noise.
In 2015, Bang & Olufsen helped create its first transparent wool-fabric with Kvadrat. For this launch, Bang & Olufsen and Norm Architects wanted to explore a new type of textile to bring more tactility to the products and to integrate them beautifully in the home. The fabric — made of wool and viscose — originates from Kvadrat’s Hallingdal Fabric providing excellent durability, while the viscose adds depth to the colour.
— The Contrast Collection is a timeless interpretation of current interior trends focusing on tactility and textures. The combination of colour tones, materials and surfaces makes the collection a unique, new offering in a timeless design. The products are not only aesthetically aligned – they also deliver amazing Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound, says Kresten Bjørn Krab-Bjerre, Design Director at Bang & Olufsen.KvadratNorm ArchitectsBang & OlufsenKresten Bjørn Krab-BjerreKvadrat’s Hallingdal Fabric
