An Ode to the Pencil


Whether it’s for architecture, product design, literature or music, the pencil has been the flint to the fire of creation for ages. However, times are changing and fewer and fewer people are sketching and writing. Designed as an homage to the pencil, the B&O Loudspeaker takes on the familiar form of the tip in an artistic, functional way. Like an old school knife-cut pencil, its hexagonal shape narrows gently from top to bottom. Though not immediately obvious to most, designers with a knack for drawing will recognize and appreciate this familiar fragment.
