Designer Bang & Olufsen Harmony OLED 4k TV now in Bronze and Brass editions

The Beovision Harmony TV from Bang & Olufsen, one of the most extraordinary 4k OLED screens currently available, has just been made available in two new designer colourways – Bronze Tone aluminium combined with Walnut wood panels, and Brass Tone aluminium combined with Smoked Oak wood panels.

The OLED display, available in 65- and 77-inch versions, features a unique sound system with distinctive wood panelling which folds up in front of the screen when the TV is not in use.

The aluminium is manufactured at Bang & Olufsen’s factory in Struer, while the wooden speaker front is made in collaboration with Bjerrum-Nielsen, an artisan Danish wood supplier, who first worked with Bang & Olufsen more than 70 years ago making radio cabinets.

“The metal tone colours that we have launched to the market have all been very successful,” Kresten Bjørn Krab-Bjerre, Creative Director at Bang & Olufsen, told us. “It’s clear that those treatments of the aluminium appeal to our customers and are something that we’ve been refining for years. This expertise has allowed us to create new exciting expressions that enhance the design even further and is surely what our customers expect from us.”

Switched on, the set’s speakers fan out like wooden wings, as the TV rises to an ideal viewing height. 

The Bang & Olufsen Harmony is a masterpiece of engineering and design

The set’s audio system is three channel, but sounds more immersive due to clever DSP processing. However, as the Harmony has a 7.1 surround sound decoder, it can also be expanded with Beolab speakers, like the Beolab 18, Beolab 50 and Beolab 90, creating a full  home cinema experience. The audio system can also be used independent of the TV as a high performance Bluetooth solution. 

The Beovision Harmony is built around an LG OLED panel and uses that brand’s webOS smart platform, which comes with all the usual streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube.  

The new look Harmony TVs are available from Bang & Olufsen direct, with prices starting at £16,500.
