Happily strolling down Strøget, the Copenhagen pedestrian shopping street, my eye catches a glimpse of an elegant bicycle, placed in the window of Bang & Olufsens very new flagship store in the posh and expensive end of this 1,1 kilometre long tourist attraction running from Rådhuspladsen to Kongens Nytorv. And yes, this is a Sögreni, one of the 20-or-so ever made in the famous collaboration from 2008 between Sögreni of Copenhagen and Georg Jensen. Bang & Olufsen has borrowed this bicycle from Georg Jensen to display the brand new hearphone Beoplay H6. The company discribes the new hearphone like this: “BeoPlay H6 is crafted in luxurious materials, and makes a bold statement in terms of design. With a choice of black or natural leather it is a perfect match if you refuse to compromise quality in sound, design or craftsmanship”. This bicycle and these hearphones – what a match! The bicycle is not for sale, but the headphones could be yours for a mere 2.995 DKK – about 400 euros.

IF YOU DO, IT WILL BE DEFLATED

As you might know, Sögreni offers a 25-year warranty on the frame, and with our special delta-treatment of all steel parts, rust is having a hard time with our bicycles. Also the way we grease things up, and the way … Continue reading →
