There is mention of 20 days a year in China with suppliers. This is what they need to get right if they are to sell to interior designers and style conscious customers.

Style over substance.

would you like to use this experience in the design of Bang & Olufsen’s luxury lifestyle audio products? And are you looking for an opportunity to:
– Improve your CMF design skills and apply them to Bang & Olufsen products?

 

Improve your skills sounds an odd thing to write in a job ad?

There’s an argument to be made it might be intentionally worded like that. It might attract fresh blood/younger designers, which is something it feels like they sorely need.

"B&O has a distinctive design appeal that Wired described as “quality media delivery via striking objects”. The company is looking for a seasoned CMF designer to join their team in Copenhagen, Denmark."

 

"seasoned" does not not mean fresh?

I get it.

I think it’s an important role. After all their products have to fit in your home.

Car manufacturers also place significant importance on this.

The annual report said they want to move from luxury product to luxury lifestyle so its form first

Absolutely correct.

Bang & Olufsen's audio pedigree is exceptional. If they want to continue to sell to new consumers, they need to flex their design muscles. This is absolutely what they should be doing. I love B&O not just for sound, but that their products are so beautiful.

I agree. Having just retired from the job of senior Designer in the auto industry I've seen the colour and materials work that's carried out for cars and it's certainly important. Being in the market for a Beosound 1 for our kitchen I can say that I would have bought the brass anodising if it was the contemporary brass colour I'd be expecting . An automotive C&M designer would make it less yellow I'd suggest. Perhaps I should borrow one just to check?
