Bang & Olufsen has to be run exclusively by Bachelor Uncles. Their designs are elegant and modern, but they are out there. Their obsession with glass, steel and wood fits in great with contemporary and mid century architecture, but they do not have soft lines. They really understand that a device should look good when it’s not in use.
So today I want to share with you some really amazing Bang & Olufsen designs. One day, I hope to own more than just my Beosystem 10, B&O’s take on the boombox.
Let me share with you the beauty. All of these are real products, that are gorgeous but stupid fucking expensive. Bust out your wallets, cuz we’re gonna go check out the BEO!
Here’s the thing. These designs do NOT sell well. They are not focus grouped. These are functional, beautiful designs that stand the test of time. They never DON’T look cool. Even 35 years later, my Beosystem 10 looks clean and modern. It is an engineering and design marvel.
This is the essence of Bachelor Uncle design. Singular. Quirky. Timeless. But ultimately unsuccessful. I hope Bang & Olufsen last forever. They’re just the fucking best. One day I will be rich enough to outfit my home in only B&O electronics. They look amazing. They sound amazing. They’re fun to operate. Truly, the rich get everything.
