Here is what Bang & Olufsen tells about their design:
We seek a design that matters. Design that naturally makes our products express how they want to be used. To us, design is not just the beautiful shape we wrap our technology in. Our design approach flows through all aspects of product development – from crystallising the fundamental user needs in early concept development through the engineering phases. This allows us to deliver products where we never compromise on the basic product idea.
