This was the question asked to the young participants of the competition run by Bang & Olufsen. To designers Sam Whyman & Andrew Guscott, it meant the B&O A9 – Weekender Edition. This beautiful speaker focuses on personal time, which is a luxury these days. The purpose of the design is to make you appreciate the details like the melody of the song you are listening to and of course your environment.
The legs are crafted from Cocobolo wood, which continues to darken as oxidation occurs, and the final 2 sevenths of each leg is highlighted to represent the weekend. The hammered copper collar adds character to the design. Sweet!
