Vifa Oslo are Wireless Speakers for the Chic

WIRELESS LOUDSPEAKERS FOR ANYONE WHO VALUES EXCLUSIVE NORDIC DESIGN AND AUTHENTIC SOUND

Danish speaker manufacturer Vifa just introduced its fourth wireless speaker called Oslo. The $549 portable Bluetooth speaker resembles a chic handbag or tote, just like two other of the company’s speakers. The Oslo is vertically designed to take up less space, while still be able to reproduce what the company calls “large-scale sound”. The carry-anywhere speaker is covered in a special-designed textile cover from Kvadrat that gives the loudspeaker a genuinely groomed look. And its solid aluminum frame underlines the idea of a robust premium product. Colorwise, Oslo is available in a range of timeless shades: Sand Yellow, Ocean Blue, Anthracite Grey, and Pebble Grey. Finally, the discretely embossed logo and embroidered interface that has become Vifa’s signature in the Nordic series, allow Oslo to blend discretely in to any interior.

“The challenge with Oslo was to create a product that produces a powerful, potent reproduction of music and yet has that understated, elegant design fitting into any interior. Since music today is mobile, we wanted an agile product you can easily move around in your home. Therefore we went for the upright lines, allowing for a small footprint. This means Oslo takes up little space – but still has the physics for a full-bodied reproduction of music at impressive playback volume,” explains Chief Design Engineer Mikael Ankersen.

Price and Availability

The Vifa Oslo just launched in Denmark and will be available May 2016 in the US for $549 or at www.vifa.dk.
