This winter Bang & Olufsen lights a spark of gleaming color in the monochrome world of electronic design. The Cool Modern Collection introduces an entirely new style choice to the Bang & Olufsen universe by presenting a line of its most popular sound systems, speakers and televisions draped in warm colors, rarely seen in electronic products.
The new Cool Modern Collection combines the iconic design and cool Nordic minimalism of Bang & Olufsen with gleaming, brass-toned aluminum structures and dark beautiful textile colors to create a warm polished ambience in line with the leading trends.
From faucets to furniture, appliances to audio equipment, brass-patinas have been sneaking their way into our homes for quite some time. Whereas harshly sterile metallics or gaudy golds were popular in recent decades, there has been a clear movement away from these design choices, particularly in the past few years. Instead, brass—with its earthy and warm hues—boasts a more classic and interesting history.
New Textile Colors
The addition of bold temperamental colors to the stringent architectural form language is inspired by both contemporary interior trends and the creative Art Deco movement of the roaring 1920s when Bang & Olufsen was founded.
The Cool Modern Collection fuses technology and decorative art in a celebration of colorful living, introducing two new jewel-toned fabric colors for speaker covers. Purple Heart delivers a warm nuance of aged wine and dark heather, while Parisian Night suggests a velvety deep blue night sky.
As part of the Cool Modern Collection, BeoLab 18 and BeoVision 14 are fitted with smoked oak lamellas on the speaker covers. They are paired with new matte black stands and wall mounts to ensure a cohesive interaction with the soft glow from the brass-toned frame.

The new brass color toned collection includes a wide selection of products, including the new BeoVision 14 television, the wireless music system BeoSound 35, the iconic BeoLab 18 speakers, and the wireless speakers system BeoSound 1 and BeoSound 2.
