CUSTOM DESIGN

Kitchen? Executive boardroom? Public restaurant? With the vast colour choices and modular design concept, BeoSound Shape can be customised to match and elevate any living space.

ROOM ACOUSTICS

Poor indoor acoustics makes even the most beautiful room unpleasant to be in. Relieve the problem by integrating acoustic damper tiles when you design your own BeoSound Shape.

A BAND ON THE WALL

Prepare for an innovative and social music experience that brings ‘the band’ right into your room. BeoSound Shape cleverly utilises a setup with multiple speakers to deliver a concert-like perception of singer and instruments.

ALL-IN-ONE SPEAKER SYSTEM

BeoSound Shape is more than just a speaker. It is a complete wireless speaker system that can boast as many as 44 individual speakers, and play digital music in rich and detailed high-res audio quality.

CONNECTIVITY

At the heart of the system is our new BeoSound Core connectivity hub that lets you stream music directly from your phone or tablet via Chromecast built-in, Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth.

MULTIROOM

BeoSound Shape is a part of our Multiroom Collection – a product range that lets you connect multiple wireless speakers throughout your home and unite them in one Multiroom audio system.

CONCEPT

DEFINE AND REDEFINE THE PERFECT SHAPE

MODULAR SYSTEM

Unlike any other speaker system we let you define the size, shape, colour – even the sound performance according to your preferences. The modular tile concept behind BeoSound Shape is based on a single geometric shape, the hexagon.

Each tile serves a function as either speaker, amplifier or acoustic damper and can be pieced together in endless combinations and sizes, to serve rooms both big and small.

EVOLVING DESIGN

BeoSound Shape is a uniquely flexible speaker system that can grow and evolve with the changing ways you live. Rearrange the tiles to form a new pattern, change the colours when you redecorate or add more tiles to boost sound performance or acoustic damping properties.

Øivind Alexander Slaatto

Designer

“The hexagon is one of nature’s favoured forms, seen in anything from snowflakes to honeycombs and makes perfect sense in repetitive and expanding structures. Every outcome is unique and there is a sense of natural beauty in these infinite variations.”

CUSTOMISATION

EVERY BEOSOUND SHAPE IS A PERSONALISED PIECE OF INTERIOR DESIGN

PERFORMANCE

Say you need to improve the acoustic properties of a large room with lots of hard surfaces. In this case, you would incorporate sufficient acoustic damper tiles in your design to prevent sounds from ricocheting off the walls. For a bustling hotel lobby that transforms into a lively cocktail bar at night, an ample speaker tile setup will guarantee the perfect musical backdrop.

AESTHETICS

Don’t just think of BeoSound Shape as a functional asset. With our curated selection of high quality fabric covers, including exclusive wool fabrics from Kvadrat, we are making music a tactile and aesthetic experience too. No two configurations are likely to be the same, but each one will undoubtedly leave a lasting visual imprint on every wall and every room.

SOUND

ALL MUSIC. ZERO NOISE

BeoSound Shape is perfect in large spaces with plenty of people and lots of activity.

INCREDIBLE SOUND STAGING

Forget about reclusive ‘sweet spot’ listening. BeoSound Shape provides an immersive and social sound experience for all. Rather than optimising sound for a single fixed position our unique upmixing algorithm cleverly distributes the signals across the speakers, making the correlated signal appear in the centre from every listening position. The result: Your wall becomes a stage as the lead singer materialises in the centre and instruments join in from the sides, seemingly staying in their place even when you move around.

The sensation and spatiality of a live band performance is truly canny.

Øivind Alexander Slaatto

Designer

“The indoor climate is all-important to our well-being. One aspect is light. Another factor is air quality. But equally important are the acoustics as they impact us on both a physical and psychological level.”

A PLEASANT ATMOSPHERE

BeoSound Shape is the design-driven solution to the prevailing issue of poor room acoustics in open multifunctional spaces. The damper tiles absorb sound waves rather than reflecting them, which not only improves your music experience but also actively improves the entire acoustic atmosphere in the room – even when the system is switched off.
