Bang & Olufsen: Scandinavian Sounds

World-renowned for their distinctive range of quality music systems and high-performance loudspeakers, The Rake is extremely excited to welcome Bang & Olufsen onto its e-commerce platform.

Since the 1950s, Scandinavia has surmounted a tremendous challenge in the stakes for the most influential vanguard of architecture and design. Characterised by modernism, simplicity, functionality and minimalism, the world-renowned consumer electronics company Bang & Olufsen, founded by Peter Bang & Svend Olufsen, symbolizes each one of these features in their design.

Ahead of their time in Scandinavia’s design rush, Peter Bang & Svend Olufsen started their journey in Denmark in 1925. The town of Struer, located in the north-western part of Denmark, was the place where the two young engineers founded the brand. The synergy between design, sound and engineering is the essence of Bang & Olufsen and every part is driven by passion, pride and persistence to create something that their followers can truly fall in love with, appreciate and continue to use as the decades pass by.
