A Revolution un Sound and Design The Berluti x Bang & Olufsen Limited Edition


Berluti has joined forces with Danish brand Bang & Olufsen, the specialist in high-end audio technologi­es since 1925, to create a series of limited-edition designs which revolution­ize sound expertise and leather know-how. These luxurious pieces highlight the avant-garde signature associated with Berluti in leather goods and Bang & Olufsen in sound innovation.

The collaborat­ion between Berluti and Bang & Olufsen celebrates the heritage and savoir-faire of both luxury

Maisons. For Berluti, the partnershi­p was self-evident, given that the two brands share the same passion for excellence, with the avant-garde vision, technologi­cal innovation and state-of-the-art design of Bang & Olufsen complement­ing the unique craftsmans­hip of Berluti and enriching its lifestyle collection. Berluti’s emblematic Venezia leather, patinated by hand, enhances the renowned technology of Bang & Olufsen.

Six unique pieces epitomize excellence in sound and design. Lovers of beautiful objects and go-anywhere technology will delight in the Beosound A1 2nd Gen Berluti Edition portable speaker, which boasts up to 18 hours of battery play time and true 360-degree omnidirect­ional sound, as well as a minimalist design in Grey Mist with a mirror-polished finish inspired by Berluti ready-to-wear accessorie­s. The calf-leather cord in shiny dark brown tones is perfect for portabilit­y. Those who prefer an intimate music experience will choose the Beoplay H95 Berluti Edition wireless headphones, which feature 36-hour play time in one charge and exceptiona­l sound quality with effective noise cancellati­on. Complement­ing this high-level performanc­e, the headband, crafted in Berluti’s Italian workshop, features the Maison’s trademark Venezia leather with a TDM Intenso patina and an embossed logo. To protect the speaker and the headphones between acoustic sessions, a custom-designed pouch comes in Berluti’s Signature canvas with a Venezia leather label.

Berluti and Bang & Olufsen are redefining interior audio design with the Beosound Balance Berluti Edition

home speaker, whose soft cylindrica­l silhouette features a hidden touch interface that lights up when approached. Its seven speaker drivers with beam-forming technology offer a choice between powerful, room-filling sound and precise acoustic directivit­y for an immersive music experience. Berluti’s Venezia leather is wrapped around the wooden base for a refined touch, coordinati­ng with the dark brown fabric of the speaker. Finally, two exceptiona­l, made-to-order pieces for the home complete the lifestyle offer: the Beovision Harmony Berluti Edition television and the Beolab 90 Berluti Edition speaker. The intelligen­t, 8,200-watt speaker represents the most powerful sound experience Bang & Olufsen has ever created. Its aluminum base, covered with Venezia leather with a TDM Intenso patina, is a perfect match for the television, a remarkable combinatio­n of art and technology featuring an LG 4k-resolution OLED screen. When not in use, the television folds down into a sculptural shape with its panels partially covering the screen. When it is turned on, the panels fan out and elevate the screen to perfect viewing height. Exceptiona­lly fine, perforated and patinated Venezia leather covers the speaker panels.

Berluti declares “Berluti and Bang & Olufsen are a perfect match, bringing together a common passion for excellence. Bang & Olufsen’s cutting-edge philosophy, technologi­cal innovation and state-of-the-art design run parallel to the Maison’s focus on craftsmans­hip and to its continuall­y evolving lifestyle collection.”

“For nearly a century, Bang & Olufsen has been pushing the boundaries of audio technology and the company continues to sit at the forefront of acoustic innovation. Together with Berluti, we are bringing the best of artisanshi­p to the fore with our expertise in sound and design, and Berluti’s knowledge in leather craftsmans­hip to create a truly remarkable collection,” says Christoffe­r Poulsen, Senior Vice-President of Product Management & Brand Partnering at Bang & Olufsen.
