Milan, Italy – 5 April 2016 – This year, the SuperDesign Show in Milan looks to the future with an emphasis on how boundaries between old and new, traditional and futuristic, and others have become obsolete, opening the door to unlimited creativity. For the first time in its history, KEF will join the internationally renowned event and showcase its KEF OBSESSIONS design philosophy, which allows its designers to create speakers that straddle the line between sculpture and sound. The dedicated KEF OBSESSIONS booth (Superstudio Piu, Via Tortona 27, Milan at Booth space #10)was designed by industrial designer Michael Young and will be display from April 12-17.
“The SuperDesign Show is the essential showcase for design, luxury and innovation, and we’re excited to bring KEF OBSESSIONS to the event,” said Alec Chanin, president of KEF America. “Exhibiting offers us the opportunity to let thousands of consumers, designers and buyers know what makes KEF so special and is further proof of our dedication to delivering audio solutions that not only sound amazing but that also represent the epitome of modern, industrial design.”
The KEF OBSESSIONS design philosophy reflects KEF’s absolute dedication to all aspects of speaker creation. Every detail required to create a KEF speaker is painstakingly considered and evaluated, including sound quality, innovative design, new materials, premium finishes and more, all combined with total attention to detail. What KEF OBSESSIONS reflects is a never-ending push to deliver the ultimate sensory experience. This encompasses listening enjoyment through high resolution sound, a sense of luxury through touch and feel, and a feast for the eyes through beautiful and elegant design.
