Bang & Olufsen partners with Ferrari to create a stunning collection of audio products
Premium brand Bang & Olufsen has partnered with iconic brand Ferrari to launch a collection of products including headphones, earphones and speakers which all have a striking shade of Ferrari’s signature red.
The collection has been created to celebrate the things the two brands have in common including design excellence, poise, power and precision.
“We are very excited about this collaboration. There was a strong sense of history in the making as we came together to create it,” says Bang & Olufsen CEO Kristian Teär.
“It goes all the way back to the start for B&O and Ferrari. The founders, Enzo Ferrari, Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, were visionaries, who redefinedtheir industries by challenging the status quo.
“Their legacies ring down through the decades to push both brands to new heights to this day.
“The combination of best-in-class performance, graceful aesthetics and meticulous craftsmanship brought B&O and Ferrari together to create the collection.
“This is elevated by the unrivalled heritage of both brands, making this collaboration one to remember.”
Between them there is more than 150 years of innovation which has been poured into this partnership.
Bang & Olufsen have been innovating the sound and vision landscape since 1925 when they launched in Struer, Denmark while Ferrari has been a figurehead of the automotive industry since 1947 when it started up in Maranello, Italy.
The partnership is actually a departure from Bang & Olufsen’s usual approach.
“Our classic speakers are meant to naturally blend in with people’s homes while also standing out for their beautiful design,” says Senior Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships at Bang & Olufsen, Christoffer Poulsen.
“This collection is different. They’re statement pieces. Much like supercars, they make themselves seen and heard everywhere they go.”
