Fresh off the satisfyingly irritating Twin Peaks revival, director David Lynch is lending his title to an especially restricted version Bang & Olufsen speaker. It’s a unusual collaboration from a unusual director and an organization with one of the vital business’s most unearthly speaker designs. A branding alternative made in weirdo heaven.
The speaker is necessarily a B&O Play A9 draped with a canopy taken from a lithograph at the partitions of Lynch’s expensive boutique room at Paris’s Hotel Lutetia. And just like the room itself, the speaker doesn’t come affordable. The Paris Suite A9 is to be had completely throughout the MoMA Design Store for $2,999 — more or less double the cost of an evening at Chateau Lynch.
That ridiculous worth is due partly to the truth that B&O is most effective made 30 of the rattling nice audio system to be had to the general public at massive. Each are signed and numbered by means of Lynch and a portion of the proceeds is going to the director’s basis, which, naturally, makes use of Transcendental Meditation to lend a hand scale back pressure in at-risk populations.
According to the corporate, Lynch is a “self-proclaimed long-time patron of Bang & Olufsen,” simply don’t be expecting the item to make a cameo any of Lynch’s personal movies, if the director has anything else to mention about it.
