Pocket-lint had been arranging to interview Bang & Olufsen’s most prolific of industrial designers over the decades, David Lewis, as part of Style Week. Sadly, Mr Lewis passed away on 8 November 2011 after a short illness in his adopted homeland of Denmark. Although Bang & Olufsen primarily works with freelance designers in order to keep their products fresh, it was Lewis who best represented the brand for over 35 years and helped make it the household name to aspire to for audio and home cinema technology. Today Pocket-lint looks back at some of Lewis’s work and his ideas and inspirations as a designer.
The Beolit 20 Powerful Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is now available on Amazon.
Bang and Olufsen's new speaker plays nice with Chromecast, AirPlay, Spotify Connect and more. Most importantly, you can actually afford it.
Brian Heater: "If nothing else, Bang & Olufsen knows how to make an impression. The Danish audio company announced a pair of new wireless speakers — or rather, one speaker in two different sizes."
