Hey there!

I have recently acquired i Bang & Olufsen branded lighter. It is made by the company Rowenta but that is the only information i have. It has been impossible for me to find any information at all. I have posted a picture of the lighter here below:

Welcome to Beoworld !

There's lots of things around with Bang & Olufsen stamped on it, also lots of things with
no relation to the company whatsoever. Do a search on Ebay and you'll be surprised how many sellers are trying to
up the price on their items by making it a "unique collectable".
The lack of a B&O company logo could suggest that this is such an item.

Hey there! 

It has come to my attention that it was givin to a friend of mine from a Bang and Olufsen employee. But i have not been able to find any information on Ebay either. It is a big mystery me and i would like to know if there is anyone out there with a similar lighter.

The font used on the lighter is not used with any logo — replica.

L1NO:

That font looks a lot like the one they used through the 80's-90's.

Vinyl records, cassettes, open reel, valve amplifiers and film photography.

the Rowenta design does look 80's... is there any other markings ie model or model number.

I have a letter opener that is marked Bang & Olufsen but no logo and I guess is somewhat moody.. but what's interesting is how well designed and weighted it is, it's a real joy to use and look at. Someone, somewhere spent a lot of time on this ....

I know it would never happen but it would be nice to see "inspired" by B&O

we tend to forget there is more to design than designing.
