Looks like it could be more than just a concept.

No way!

It would be a death sin to ‘bury’ loudspeaker drivers - especially when made as an acoustic lens - way back in some thing that looks like two wooden columns

Wanna know something about why:

The further description and specifications at the web address listed below the video mention thermal scans of human skin....don’t think that would be a real B and O feature. Also shows it with metal instead of wood “covers”. Refers to the Beolab 22 “by Different Circle.” I wish it were real. Rear speakers that remained closed when listening to music on just the two front speakers would be cool.

Your mind might be twisted but your assessment appears spot-on. My mind IS twisted so, even the acoustic lens seems well purposed. If someone weren't so committed to the concept I would think it was a magnificent prank.

This doesn't look official. The acoustic lens placement wouldn't work.

The logo in the beginning has a rendering flaw — look at the B.

 

It uses a different typeface in the beginning (looks like Century Gothic), the B&O branding uses Gotham. Then there's a another typeface at the end, which is Arial.

Everything looks like a bad photoshop-job in my eyes.

I can't see any mistakes on the logo in the beginning? and the fonts is Gotham, and not century Gothic 

But in the despritione on vimeo they link to a other site?
https://www.behance.net/gallery/83414001/B-O-Bang-Olufsen-Beolab-22-loudspeaker 

I think its just a concept from "different Circle" But a very nice design

It IS a bad photoshop-job -and a bad joke. I can't believe that anyone here at Beoworld could think it has anything to do with B&O -or even think it is nice Crying

Last time I saw something like that was the pods from space in the classic movie "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"... Big Smile

-or maybe it looks like... Hmmm. Old Jack - your mind is not that twisted… Whistle

The problem is that people on FB actually think it’s an official B&O product.

(imho... it’s a frankenstein speaker... it plain uglyyyyy)

Dear Beoworld users,

We have received a lot of mails regarding our concept speaker "BeoLab 22" 
First and foremost thank you for 
questions in our mailbox. 

BeoLab 22 was a  product that was designed many years ago - just to show how the next level of BeoLab 18 could look. We are sorry if we have made anyone doubt or hurt anyone knowing that we have made our design on what we think a BeoLab 22 should look. 

We have sent all our designs to former design manager, Flemming in 2012 and Marie Kristine Schmidt back in 2015.Unfortunately,  We do not have plans to create other concepts in the furture to Bang & Olufsen

So please just enjoy what you have seen and think about that designers are working so many hours to show what they have in mind. But Just have in mind that people are spending lot of hours creating amazing designs.

Thank you for your time reading this.

Have a great day.  

Sincerely 

Different Circle - Design & Branding Agency

I agree that it was fun and wish we had more ideas like this to talk about. Maybe B&O will give us something new and exciting to discuss in the near future. Word is that the Harmony is just the beginning of many more new products to be launched this year.

YES OldJack - But Beovision Eclipse is too old.

Her er et link til en youtube-video, hvor baronen beskriver opsætning af
højtalergrupper, processeringen m.m. Selvom jeg ikke altid er enig med
ham, kan den være fin, hvis man vil se, hvordan man (læs: han) gør det:

Only in Danish.

Now OldJack has learned Danish, so it's probably ok. Big Smile

Hi Wilfried

The video was posted by a design and branding agency called Different Circle. Some of the clever people on here managed to work out that they had modified images of Beolab 18's to make them look like a potential new product. Giving them the name Beolab 22 and producing a clever little video made some of us think that this might be the dawning of a new official B&O product. 

I'm guessing the video must have upset a number of people as it has now been taken down. As Gatex said above designers showing new concepts should be seen as fun but maybe Different Circles should have done this without trying to make the video look like it might have been produced by B&O.

Controversy, intrigue and suspense are all good marketing tools even if they are not always real. So thanks Different Circle for giving us something to talk about. I know it didn't fool some of the Beoworld Detectives but it did provoke an interesting discussion.
