ccasionally you see a product and you just respond
instantly. Everything about Danish audio company
Libratone appeals, from the charming logo to the
kaleidoscope of colours used for their high-end speakers. In just
three years since their launch, Libratone have grown into a
stylish brand with sales outlets worldwide.
Their mission is clear: “To change the image of the sound
system in your living room and empower you to reclaim your
home. We aim to make technology accessible – to give it a more
human face. We want to create a sound source that will be a
positive addition to the room.”
A pretty noble goal then – Libratone want to improve how we
listen to music, and also improve how speakers actually fit in to
our homes, dispensing with the old modes of black boxes
pushed into the corner of rooms in favour of sophisticated
minimalist design. In the company’s own words, “We design to
improve homes. Not to be a necessary evil. We design to stand
out, but not like a sore thumb. We design to blur the lines
between furniture and sound systems by applying the aesthetics
of the Scandinavian heritage to our design thinking.”
Libratone was founded by Tommy Andersen, Jes Mosgaard and
Søren Louis Pedersen, all passionate audiophiles driven by the
dream to set music free, adding a new dimension to our
electronically stored music collections on devices such as
iPhone, iPod and iPads. The team aims to bring its customers
the best of Scandinavian design and acoustic performance in
one perfect package.
