Since the very first products rolled out of Bang & Olufsen in 1925, wood has been a material of choice for us.
Since the very first products rolled out of Bang & Olufsen in 1925, wood has been a material of choice for us. It has been used for thousands of years as a construction and furniture material and to us it represents something warm and alive. It’s an organic and fresh opposite to metal, glass and plastic – and a natural way to apply a “furniture-feel” to our technology.
Wood has always been an important aspect of Nordic architecture and furniture design, and modern interest in new and innovative ways to use this precious living matter has never been greater. It adds an individual character, allows for exceptional versatility in shape and application, and provides inherent robustness and strength.
As an environmentally responsible company we always aim to create sustainable products. The considerations involved in the operation, design, and longevity of our products must be in mutual balance with the environmental impact of production. Based on this we have selected the types of wood that have a sustainability perspective and they are all FSC* certified. FSC certified wood is a guarantee that the wood comes from a sustainable source. We work with walnut, maple and oak. They all have their own distinct qualities and characteristics. Many of our products give you customisation options, allowing you to choose the exact wood type that suits you.
