Rimowa x Bang & Olufsen crossover explores link between sound and travel

Rimowa has announced its first collaboration with luxury audio and lifestyle brand Bang & Olufsen.

“Rimowa and Bang & Olufsen share a passionate approach to purposeful and elegant design,” said Rimowa CEO Alexandre Arnault. “Both of them celebrate aluminium in their products. To strengthen the natural relationship between sound and travel, we have proudly partnered to create the Rimowa x Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones.”

“For more than 90 years, Bang & Olufsen has striven to be more than an audio company, a brand that stimulates people’s lives through a passion for sound, design and craftsmanship,” said Bang & Olufsen executive VP, brand and markets, John Mollanger.

“With Rimowa being much more than a luggage company – a brand that makes travel an art and that disrupts its own marketplace – we are honoured and proud to have an ideal partner. The first materialisation of our collaboration, the Rimowa edition of our flagship Beoplay H9i headphones and exclusive Rimowa carrying case, will make the world travel at the speed of sound.”

The limited edition headphones will be available at HKD7250 (US$923.50) starting April 15 in select Rimowa and Bang & Olufsen stores as well as online at bang-olufsen.com.
