Oh my, available at the MoMA Design Store in SoHo.  I'll have to pop down there and pick them up.  NOT.

I've never understood that kind of art. Sorry.

If I wanted to see stuff like that on my B&O, I'd take it to the local primary school and ask the 5 year olds to go for it....

I’m with you Lee. Brands like Rolex or Porsche are too busy honing classic designs, to be bothered with this pointless trivia.

Beovision Eclipse, Beolit 15, Beoplay A2, H6/H2, Form 2, Beoplay A3, Beovision 5-42 connected to a DVD1

Not a fan. They could spend the time and effort and money developing a set of speakers between BL20 & BL50... focus on whats missing with the range

I am pretty sure, that avoiding this kind of addition to an existing couple of speakers would help much in the process of making a ‘speaker between the BL 20 and 50’.

My advice - stay clear of the Lynch versions and continue to hope for a new speaker (of some sort).....

....and enjoy what you already have 😉

I’m not entirely convinced that these designs are causing any harm to the idea of new speakers in an entirely different market segment. They’re Beoplay speakers, Beoplay speakers get new colour options multiple times a year and this isn’t really any different IMO and given the limited run it’s not even going to take up too much manufacturing time. This is exactly the same as the B&O x Saint Laurent collab to me *shrug*.

Absolutely re unnecessary. Strikes me that are far happier bringing out new colours and designs to existing products than addressing any future developments and support, in general,for older devices. The only light on horizon is that they seem to be redesigning the app to include sound controls which many have requested.

Beosound Shape by David Lynch.   Shouldn't he first see if his other 'art' sells?

Thanks for the link. That's pretty cool actually and I am a fan. The again, I do appreciate and enjoy abstract art, so this fits well with my home decor. Not sure I have the space for anymore B&O though as less is often so much more in my opinion. Still, I might see if I can find a place for it somewhere! Happy Thursday :) Simon.

Current products: BV11-46, BV8-32, V1-32, A1

At least someone else likes it! Thought I was the only one 😂 I wouldn’t say no to the BeoSound Shape if I had $100,000 😂

I think this one is a bit different to those, and more like the Saint Laurent collab (that I’m 99% sure was only available from one store in France) because of how few they’re actually making of these. Plus side of there being so many designs and colours now is at least there’ll be at least one design for everybody 😂

I just looked on the MOMO website.

The 8 tile shape that i saw at my dealer costs € 4250,- 

The 8 tile shape with David Lynch cover is only $ 100.000

That,s a bargain right???

Then i do not buy the 4x Beolab 50 speakers with an oled tv 65 

 

Just my idea

Well, at least it's better than "Dune."

But to me, this is the hallmark of a modern "lifestyle" brand, less time spent on the underlying product and more on flash and marketing to try and make it "hip" and "cool."

Oh, agree completely, Twin Peaks, and Eraserhead both. Blue Velvet rocked too.

I think maybe I am in a minority as I quite like these designs and the work of David Lynch. To me they are reminiscent of the BWM Art Cars Carshttp://www.artcar.bmwgroup.com/en/art-car/ I’m sure these cars are not to everyones taste but with contributors such as David Hockney & Andy Warhol if one of them came onto the market I’m sure it would be a wise investment. 

Art, like high end audio and video equipment is highly controversial and subjective. I think it a bold move by B&O to find a way to bring their products to a new wealthy and discerning sector of the public. The fact that many of these people have more money than sense some might say is just the target market B&O are looking for. 
I’m sure many people unaware of B&O would be astonished at the amount of money some of us spend on our systems and the amount of time we spend talking about them. 
I say well done B&O for taking such an enterprising move and long may the controversy of art and hifi continue.

I really like the M5 and P2. Not so keen on the Shape.

Hope to try and get my hands on a P2 for the en-suite, if they come on-line, as its not very clear if its just Harrods for the UK and or online as well!

One of the art forums I drop into this release has very favourable reviews for the collaboration. David Lynch releases always attract a lot of interest and his last release sold out quickly. So definitely a good move for B&O

I do not know how that strategy works for B&O but David Lynch must be a marketing genius.

That’s a slight over-reaction. It’s a bit of fabric on already fantastic products Stick out tongue

I agree with you Jon.  They probably outsourced this anyway, and hopefully they didn't pre-pay a tremendous amount of royalties to Mr Lynch.

Well, the Shape is a one-off (plus the artist's proof) so it's similar to the BMW art-cars in that respect.  Not sure if a David Lynch original is worth $100K (OK, subtract the regular speaker price)  but that's another matter; it *is* "original art" in that sense.  The other products are production runs.  The David Lynch premium is: A9 $2700 -> $5000; M5 $600 -> $750; P2 $170 -> $200.  You get your MoMA member discount on the M5 & P2 (but not the A9 because it's a limited edition of 5, nor the Shape) which brings them closer to the regular prices: M5 -> $675, P2 -> $180.  But hey, you can get $10 off your $100,000 Shape purchase if you sign up for their mailing list... heh.

P.S. Speaking of art/speaker collaborations which merely tart up the standard product, check the Marcel Wanders KEF LS50W "Nocturne Edition", $2200 regular -> $2500 artsy.  http://international.kef.com/ls50-wireless-nocturne-by-marcel-wanders  Hopefully it won't smoke itself when you purchase it! (That's a Banksy joke, if you're living in an art-free zone.)
