Vifa, “The sound of Oslo”.

Oggi voglio parlarvi di OSLO, un’oggetto dal design semplice ma allo stesso tempo ricercato che mi ha subito conquistata!.

OSLO è uno speaker wireless sorprendente, nel suono, nelle forme e nei materiali. L’accuratezza con cui è stato progettato è unica, dalla ricerca del tessuto progettato dallo Studio tessile Kvadrat (studio tra l’altro davvero interessante), alla scocca in policarbonato ed alluminio. Vifa, l’azienda danese produttrice, creando OSLO, si era posta l’obbiettivo di generare un oggetto che colpisse i sensi, dal tatto alla vista e per finire l’udito, dando un’esperienza del tutto avvolgente.

OSLO e gli altri modelli speaker, nascono dall’esigenza di riprodurre quel suono avvolgente e senza pari che gli amanti del vinile conosceranno bene. Come racconta infatti uno dei creatori:

“On a recent trip to the US, I bought Bob Dylan’s Original Mono Recordings. A complete compilation of his first eight albums in a remarkable sound quality. When I got home I spent an entire evening sitting on the floor in my living room, listening to the vinyls. It was just … you know, it’s physical what great sound does to you. A sort of whoosh when it touches you.

That sound on those records was so unique. You felt like you were actually there, at the Columbia Studios, just in front of Bob and his guitar. It was … well. It was what music should always be like. It was true, authentic sound in all its splendour”.

Today I want to tell you about OSLO, an object with a simple design but at the same time sought who has conquered me right away !.

OSLO is an amazing wireless speaker, sound, shapes and materials. The accuracy with which it was designed is unique, from the tissue research designed by Kvadrat Textile Studio (Studio among other really interesting), the polycarbonate shell and aluminum. Vifa, the Danish producer, creating OSLO, had set itself the goal of generating an object that struck the senses, from the sight and touch to finish the hearing, giving totally immersive experience.

OSLO and the other speaker models, arise from the need to reproduce the enveloping sound and unparalleled that vinyl lovers know well. As the story goes one of the creators:

“On a recent trip to the US, I bought Bob Dylan’s Original Mono Recordings. A complete compilation of his first eight albums in a remarkable sound quality. When I got home I spent an entire evening sitting on the floor in my living room, listening to the vinyls. It was just … you know, it’s physical what great sound does to you. A sort of whoosh when it touches you.

That sound on those records was so unique. You felt like you were actually there, at the Columbia Studios, just in front of Bob and his guitar. It was … well. It was what music should always be like. It was true, authentic sound in all its splendour”.

Gli speaker Vifa sono tutti ispirati alle capitali scandinave, oltre ad Oslo infatti troviamo COPENAGHEN la versione più grande, HELSINKI e STOCKHOLM. Trovo che il design di questi oggetti sia unico, essenziale e visivamente accattivante con chiari echi alle forme tipiche del design scandinavo che personalmente amo.

The Vifa speaker are all inspired by the Scandinavian capitals, as well as Oslo in fact we find the larger version COPENHAGEN, STOCKHOLM and HELSINKI. I find that the design of these objects is unique, clean and visually appealing with clear echoes to the typical forms of Scandinavian design that I personally love.
