Reigniting the spirit of innovation
Founded in 1925, Bang & Olufsen’s heritage began with a vision to redefine how sound would be consumed for generations to come. Since then, the brand has shaped the history of audio technology with craftsmanship and high-fidelity sound like no other. In the everlasting spirit of innovation, the brand expands its initiative to connect with the young and rising generation through a bolder and more expressive look. The new store features more dynamic colors such as yellow with the façade renewed with Danish beach inspired slate stone finishes. Lustrous lighting invites guests into the storefront with a series of floating display of the brand’s most iconic Beoplay A9 speakers.
A full sensorial experience
By the store’s intentional segmentation, the guests are encouraged to immerse in the unique audio-visual experience of the various product lines and its iconic craftmanship. Each interaction is divided into a space to hear, see and feel each product. An independent audio room also encapsulates the ultimate cinematic experience by Bang & Olufsen.
Reconnecting through a new vision for sound
“In this digital age, we are bombarded with noise at every turn and the technology that promises to bring people closer together has instead left us disconnected. In response to this, our new experiential store provides us with a platform to flaunt a revigorated Bang & Olufsen to our Hong Kong audience, but it especially lets us present an artisanal experience in our store where sound is meant to be seen, felt and heard,” said
Arnaud De Schuytter, President of Bang & Olufsen Asia Pacific.
