Cult-classic director and Wallpaper* 2010 Guest Editor David Lynch has lent his artistic vision to Bang & Olufsen, wrapping various speakers in images from his 1970s War Between the Shapes series of works on paper.

The maverick multi-discipline artist, who has a penchant for revealing disturbing tales from the darkside, is a self-proclaimed (if unlikely) ‘patron' of the Danish audio brand, and this marks his second artistic collaboration with it, following his limited edition wrapping of the Beoplay A9 speakers in 2017.

Praising the brand's ‘great sound and great design', Lynch has now added a unique version of the Beosound Shape speaker to his growing list of limited edition art objects for B&O. The wall-mounted wireless speaker system will be on display at MoMA Design Store’s Soho location, as part of an immersive and interactive pop-up experience inspired by imagery from Lynch’s films.

Lynch’s imagery has also been embossed onto the Beoplay M5 compact wireless speaker, and the portable P2, along with his signature, which is laser engraved on both. If you're quick, you can get your hands on these ‘very limited' editions available exclusively at the MoMA pop-up.


The Bang & Olufsen x David Lynch pop-up is at MoMA Design Store Soho from October 10 to November 11. For more information, visit the Bang & Olufsen website
