'The Art of Sound'

Type:

Live Action

"To make great sound, truly great sound, you have to appeal to not one sense, but every sense." - Heat SF, agency

 

When we were approached with this concept from B&W of being creatively driven by our senses, it's safe to say that we were all in. First we were immediately drawn to imagining ways of how we could accentuate how the light plays off the contours of the product and how the synapse could be elegantly integrated. To do this, we called on purposeful lighting and lensing,  seeking to capture each sleek curve and fine detail of the Bowers and Wilkins Formation speakers.
