Danish design label Bang & Olufsen has revealed its latest TV technology, showcasing the Beovision Harmony at Milan Design Week 2019. The LG OLED C9 77” TV screen is housed by a folding butterfly wing-like unit that partially covers the screen when turned off, and opens up when turned on to reveal the full display.

The unit is available in both a crafted oak and aluminium front or a mixture of grey melange two-tone fabric and aluminium, designed to house the multimedia units sound component. Tuned by hand and ear to achieve the very best in sound performance, the Beovision Harmony features a specially-designed engraved pattern that channels acoustic sounds through a fully active DSP-based sound centre.

Merging the highest level of interior design with performance and function, the Bang & Olufsen Beovision Harmony focuses on reducing the initial impact of a large TV screen in the living space while maintaining its core purpose. While its design is inspired by the retro teak trends of the ’60s, its performance is anything but traditional, with enhanced self-illuminating pixels and a sound system that can link with up to eight Beolab 18, Beolab 50 and Beolab 90 speakers.

The Bang & Olufsen Beovision Harmony will hit B&O boutiques in October 2019 with a price tag of £16,100 GBP (approx. $21,000 USD).

For more beautifully designed home tech, take a look at the IKEA ENEBY Bluetooth speaker that is aiming to take on the Hong Kong market.
