B&O PLAY, of Bang & Olufsen, announces the North American release of a sleek accessory collection exclusively designed by UK-based Hard Graft. The Hard Graft accessory line-up presents a bespoke collection of three different cases to protect B&O PLAY’s award-winning, stylish over-ear headphones BeoPlay H6, sleek and lightweight Form 2i headphones, and state-of-the-art, robust earphone BeoPlay H3. The collaboration is a natural extension of both brands’ competencies in innovative design, superior craftsmanship, high quality materials and user-convenience.
B&O PLAY was launched in 2012, yet is firmly grounded in the 89 year history of Bang & Olufsen, as it interprets and applies the same core values to a new type of contemporary, portable product that easily integrates into daily life and delivers high-quality experiences. “As B&O PLAY attracts a design-conscious end-user who seeks best-in-class technology and intuitive operation, we feel the stylish, luxurious finish of the Hard Graft line-up mirrors our brand values and perfectly complements our headphone and earphone collection,” states Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, Executive Vice President of B&O PLAY.
Since its inception in 2007, Hard Graft has been making fine leather and felt goods of the utmost quality with a great attention to detail and a sharp eye for multi-functionality and usability. “We love to take a beautifully designed object, involve some leather and wool and turn this precious product into something more by adding extra functionality and a cheeky personality to the product that it protects,” states James Teal, Founder of Hard Graft.
