Will the Bang & Olufsen Nordic Ice Collection Be a Hot Seller This Christmas?

The Bang & Olufsen Nordic Ice Collection are designed to put you in the holiday spirit and entice you to spend a lot of money this holiday season.

We love industrial design. We even tip our cap to manufacturers who try something slightly different around the various holidays and seasonal changes. Have you ever wondered why McIntosh meters are blue and the logo on current models is green (with a light source behind it)? We visited the factory last week and know the answer behind it. It’s psychological. It’s designed to make you feel a certain way when you walk into the room, turn on your system and begin listening.

The folks at Bang & Olufsen have been playing with the industrial design of their products for decades and the choice of materials and color palette are never some random act.

It’s never some overly aggressive looking design with bright colors that make you want to punch something.

The Bang & Olufsen Nordic Ice Collection is also designed to make you feel a certain way during the holiday season.

The Nordic Ice Collection is a curated selection of some of the company’s most timeless designs in a serene, Scandinavian color palette consisting of contrasting cool and warm tones, perfect for the gifting season. 

“During these uncertain times, the home has been a safe sanctuary from the outside world for many of us. For our Nordic Ice Collection, we wanted to continue this sense of calm and comfort in the home by creating products that resonate a sense of serenity and balance. More so than ever, this holiday season will mark families being reunited after time apart to share experiences and moments. This year, give the gift of music and bring joy to friends and family with our Nordic Ice Collection”, says Bang & Olufsen SVP of Product Management Christoffer Poulsen.

The Nordic Ice Collection consists of:

The result is an impressively big acoustic experience compared to its size and is the ultimate gift for the interior aesthete.

The Nordic Ice edition features an extruded recycled aluminium base and the flush lithography logo gleams from the matte surface. The edges of the base are polished to catch the light and accentuate its curved form.
