bang & olufsen x david lynch

Twin Peaks legend David Lynch first brought his design talents into the spotlight back in 1997, when he designed furniture for his film Lost Highway, before going on to present a furniture collection at the prestigious Milan Furniture Fair. In recent years the director has lent his design prowess to audio tech, most notably with Bang & Olufsen. Artwork by David Lynch, his second collaboration with the Danish brand, comprises the highly portable Beoplay P2 and the more powerful, multi-room compatible Beoplay M5. Both speakers are embossed with select images from Lynch’s War Between the Shapes series of works, created on paper in the 1970s, and from the ‘Paris Suite’ lithographs created in 2007 at the fine art printing studio Idem in Paris.

AUDI E-TRON ₹TBA, audi.inAudi’s first all-electric car is here, and it’s an SUV, which surprised us, but that shape gives it plenty of space to pack in the tech. The e-tron is built to go the distance, with a range of 248 miles, plus fast charging at up to 150kW, which means you can get an 80 per cent charge in half an hour, or 100 per cent in 50 minutes.It’s driven by two electric motors – one dedicated to the front wheels, one to the rear – giving it classic Audi Quattro four-wheel drive. The snappiness of electric motors is put to good use too: despite being a nearly five-metre SUV, it can do 0-100km/h in under six seconds. The motors have a Boost Mode to help with…

There’s very little to distract you from the road and that’s exactly what you want. Press the start button and the 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 roars into life. Want to hear the engine better? Hold the button which lowers the roof. McLaren describes the 570S Spider as a “no-compromise convertible”, because the carbon fibre tub means the car’s body is as strong as its coupe cousins.Get going and you’ll realise…
