Three zones to evoke the senses
At the heart of the new retail concept is a dedicated speaker wall that showcases all of Bang & Olufsen's best-selling speakers. You can listen to any kind of music, including your own playlist streamed from your smartphone and check out the sound of everything from the smallest cube speakers to the largest floor models.
A B&O PLAY zone invites you to listen to the brand's range of innovative designs created for more mobile lifestyles, comparing everything from the latest headphones to award-winning portable sound systems.
A more private area lets you settle in and immerse yourself in some of Bang & Olufsen's top-of-the-line viewing and listening combinations.

The scalable retail concept has been designed for spaces from 540 feet up to 2200 ft. and above, and will continue to be implemented in select Bang & Olufsen showrooms in major cities around the world.
Bang & Olufsen was founded in Struer, Denmark, in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, two innovative, young engineers devoted to high quality audio reproduction.

Still at the forefront of domestic technology, Bang & Olufsen has extended its comprehensive experience with integrated audio and video solutions for the home to other areas such as the hospitality and automotive industries in recent years. Consequently, its current product range epitomizes seamless media experiences in the home as well as in the car and on the move.

A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
