Bang & Olufsen and director, screenwriter, actor, artist, and musician David Lynch previously teamed up in 2017 to create a limited edition of Beoplay A9 speakers featuring the artist’s famed “Paris Suite” lithographs. All 30 speakers were personally signed and numbered by Lynch and were available exclusively through the MoMA Design Store.
Last month, Bang & Olufsen announced a new collaboration with David Lynch. The collaboration introduced a special edition speaker collection with artwork by the iconic artist, featuring selected images and details from the “War Between the Shapes” series, works on paper created in the 1970s, and from the “Paris Suite” lithographs created in 2007 at the renowned Idem studio.
The collection debuted in conjunction with a Bang & Olufsen pop-up at MoMA Design Store, Soho in New York City. “MoMA has a long history of working with David Lynch, and a number of Bang & Olufsen objects are in The Museum’s permanent collection,” said MoMA Design Store Director of Merchandising, Emmanuel Plat. “Because of these connections, it was a
natural fit for MoMA Design Store to premier this unique collaboration.”
The special edition speaker collection featuring artwork by David Lynch includes a very limited number of the iconic Beoplay A9, a powerful music streaming system, and Beosound Shape, a wall-mounted wireless speaker system for design conscious music lovers. The Beoplay A9 features artwork from the “Paris Suite” lithographs and it will be available in only five pieces, each of them hand-signed by David Lynch. The Beosound Shape features artwork from the “War Between the Shapes” series.
Designed to enhance the audio experience both inside and outside of the home, this exclusive collection also includes Beoplay M5, a powerful, wireless speaker with True360 Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound that seamlessly connects spaces in multiple rooms, and Beoplay P2, a truly personal and fully portable speaker, with rich, full-bodied sound and smart-connect

Bang & Olufsen also announced a limited-edition collection of the company’s most popular multiroom speakers. The Bronze Collection is tastefully adding alluring dark, naturally warm hues, character and even more vivid sound to the modern home.

For the Bronze Collection speakers, we combined the earthy aluminium bronze tone, the epitome of warmth and timeless elegance, with bespoke multi-coloured wool yarn from Kvadrat and premium walnut wood. The bronze tone stays neutral from day to night, season to season and year to year – maintaining its elegance and splendour regardless of trends and changing fashions”, said Bang& Olufsen architects and designers Anne Mee Dybbroe Andersen and Anna-Sophia Brune.
