Breaking design news from Libratone - the Danish audio company based in Copenhagen, Denmark. I was at the press launch today (in beautiful settings at the showroom of Republic of Fritz Hansen in Copenhagen - see Instagram for images) and was introduced to the latest speaker from the Libratone family - the Libratone Loop. The new speaker is, as the rest of the Danish designed speakers, covered in cashmere and offers wireless Airplay with streaming from all of Apple’s iOS devices. The patented FullRoom acoustic technology provides the listener with 360-degree sound performance.
“The play on geometric shapes is what characterizes Libratone’s design. Having a rectangular Lounge, a triangular Live and a cylindrical Zipp, the next step was naturally a circular speaker like the Libratone Loop. It’s lightweight, but delivers a superior audio performance precisely because of its round shape. It represents simplicity, elegant minimalism, craftsmanship and the fusion of form and function.” says Kristian Krøyer, Creative Director at Libratone, who was at the press launch today.
I have never had the chance to listen to a Libratone speaker before. But after the presentation today, I am convinced, that I have to try it out. Not just because of the sound (which IS very important to me and my family) but especially because it is wireless and hassle-free. Sound-to-go with my Spotify account and playlists. I like!
Libratone Loop is available on libratone.com and i Applestores from 1 October 2013. A full roll-out to the world market will happen during 2013 and 2014.
