The vivid colours, the surprising texture, the sensation that there’s much more below the surface. The embroidered volume-buttons at the front, hinting: I am a loudspeaker. Inviting you to approach, explore, discover.

Oslo is for real. Oslo is authentic, Oslo is genuine. An upright, compact design that whispers ‘Move me around, place me wherever you want.’ It’s Nordic aesthetics at its finest: Non-intrusive and discreet, yet remarkably confident about the statement it makes in any interior.

Look at the lines and linger in the most laid-back luxury one could imagine. No bragging, no bling. Simply made to be noticed.

CLOSE YOUR EYES IN ORDER TO SEE


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.

PERFECT IMPERFECTION


A soft texture. A warm touch. The surprising feel of Oslo comes from its wool cover. Selected yarns carefully woven into a specific pattern, designed by Kvadrat.

Reflection and intuition accompanied the entire work process during which Kvadrat translated their tactile knowledge to the domain of sound. Numerous hours and heaps of rough, smooth, bulky or silky weaving samples later, the fabric created is essential to the entire product experience. It appeals to the eye, the ears and your fingertips. Wool is perfect natural imperfection; it’s comfort and coziness; it’s a reassuring, basic feel. A universal material, revered through time for its resistance and the way it ages beautifully.

By a simple touch of Oslo you will truly understand the craftsmanship, the durability and the inherent quality of this product and the materials it’s made of: What you feel is what you get.

THE ESSENTIALS


The things you cherish the most. From mere everyday basics, they grow over time, becoming your indispensable travel companions through life. How come? No one can say. You just know it when it’s there: It simply feels right.

PASSION. CRAFTSMANSHIP. AND A CONTINUOUS STRIVE FOR OBTAINING AUTHENTIC SOUND.

Those have been Vifa’s core values, ever since the original founder, N.C. Madsen, decided to replace a career as an auto-mechanic by his true zeal: Loud-speaker technology. He did so decades ago; back in a small, Danish countryside village in 1933.

Vifa quickly developed into the preferred supplier of loudspeaker units for many well-known high-end brands and kept that position into this century.

Obtaining the best possible rendering of sound is a matter of orchestration, a complex calibration of multiple technical components. The know-how behind the Vifa-brand has over the years been transmitted through generations of engineers, along with a no-compromise attitude towards obtaining the absolutely best quality in terms of sound.

But premium sound also deserves a high-end presentation. In 2014 and 2015 Vifa therefore introduced a unique new product range of wireless loudspeakers.

All based on the very proud heritage and technical expertise of the Vifa sound-engineers the authentic sound is now delivered in a series of functional yet highly aesthetical loudspeakers.

So far, Oslo, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki loudspeakers have been introduced to enthusiastic markets. Each and every one intended for the music lover who values exclusive design just as much as great sound.

The new range of loudspeakers is a unique and joyous union of the Vifa core values. Authentic sound, premium materials and technology all brought to its fullest expression by a simple yet sophisticated Nordic design, translated in to versatile high-end products.

A collaboration with Kvadrat, Europe’s leading manufacturer of design textiles, is one of the more important components to the look, feel and sound of the Vifa loudspeakers. All three models carry a special-woven textile cover, giving the product a warm, rough look and feel, without compromising the sound; the textiles have been designed to let sound pass through the threads in the best possible way.

This merger of both Vifa and Kvadrat’s dedicated craftsmanship and strive for the ultimate quality contributes to the success of the Vifa series.
