    Design concepts

    Did you know these concepts by KS Design? I didn´t but like them.

    That's some truly terrible stuff. Thanks for the laugh.

    I've studied design and id say these are rather inspiring and tactile!  Hey Trip, don't laughat the work, that remote is dam far better than that silly Beo5 / 6.

    Great design is inspirational and should be applauded!

    Re: Design concepts

    Some of the concepts are off to  good start.

    I saw the original renderings of the Porsche Cayenne in Germany: Very similar to the SUV shown.

    Re: Design concepts

    I'll admit, there is some interesting stuff in there.

    That "BeoSound 7" rendering reminds me of an ICE Power driven speaker (non B&O) that was shown here on the forums a while ago. Anyone remember this? It was a wooden, 3 driver center channel and it had the exact same shape.

    Re: Design concepts

    Hi Swiss_2, 

    My comment was for Trip.  Anyway, I do find some of the designs quite intresting, TV for example.

    Honestly Trip, was that necessary  Huh? !?!

    I was not familiair with KS Design. Just had a brief look and saw nothing that I liked. Pretty much average stuff IMO. Thanks for sharing, though.

    Re: Design concepts

    To me many of them seem like odd appendices slapped on existing ideas. Like the split BV4 with a propeller. Less would be more...

    The mobile phones remind me of Nokia's unorganized lineup from the early 2000's, when every team had to implement their own idea of an unusable keyboard. And so does the remote:

    But anyway, I like watching stuff like that. At least we won't now be surprised when these pictures start cropping up in "have you seen this new B&O product" threads Big Smile

    Re: Design concepts

    low average ! the into two pieces cutted BV4 design TV with its wrong aspect ratio must be a joke.

    Re: Design concepts

    I totally applaud the young guy. I find his work inspirational with a soul and certainly wish him the best of luck.  I'm sure that he's spent many years studying incredibly hard for his qualifications. Certainly more worthwhile than just going out and buying another B&O product!

    It's easy to criticise his work but come on, just look how ugly those BL5's are   urgghhh!!! and they cost a fortune!

    Yes -  thumbs up Yes. By the way -what's the idea behind that propeller under a tv??? Huh?

    And, Paul...I agree that the BL5 are ugly (although it seems like many here on Beoworld like them...). But David Lewis' hands were tied on this task. The design was established in advance by the engineers in order to make the best possible sound. Have you seen the pictures from the development of those speakers?
    The early prototypes looked like a refrigerator with some discs on top of it...I think that Lewis did quite well under the circumstances.

    They are not beautiful like the BL 8000's, where the design came first...but they sound better.

    For some reason, the "propellor" TV is posted on this page as the Beovision12.

    Meh. Bad design is bad design. B&O doesn't always hit it out of the park either.

    Re: Design concepts

    The designs have potential. As many of the Bang & Olufsen designs that make it to production, sometimes they have to grow on us.... like the BeoSound 8 and BeoLab 5.

     

    BeoVision 7-55 3D, BeoSound 9000, BeoSound 8, BeoLab 7-6, BeoLab Penta III, BeoLab 8000, BeoLab 6000, BeoLab 2, LC-1, BeoTime (analog clock), Form 1 headphones, Beo 4 remote.
