Danish electronics manufacturer Bang & Olufsen next month sidesteps ‘traditional box-shaped units of yesteryear’ with the launch of its futuristic, oval BeoCenter 2 music system, designed by Bang & Olufsen chief designer David Lewis. The system, which offers radio, CD, DVD and MP3 playback, features wing-shaped, polished aluminium doors that close after programming to conceal the CD or DVD. The intensity of the BeoCenter 2’s display is programmed to adjust to its environment, avoiding ‘completely illuminating a dark living room’.
