Milan Design Week has made its return. Marcel Wanders MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2022

After two years, the famous Milan Design Week has made its return. Marcel Wanders studio had the honour to introduce new, bold and unique designs in collaboration with FENDI CasaFLOSUp To You AnthologyFIAMNatuzziDevon&Devon and Sahrai.

Designs by the studio were also to be seen at MoooiQeeboo, and Objets Nomades exhibition by Louis Vuitton.

Marcel Wanders studio’s first collection for FENDI Casa subtly translates signature design elements found in the FENDI fashion archives into an elegant interior setting. By adapting a metaphysical approach in the creation of these pieces, inspiration was drawn from Italian heritage, embracing its rich art, culture and craftsmanship using locally sourced glass, stone and textiles. This extensive collection consists of two mirrors, dining table, arm and lounge chairs, bed, sofa, as well as a sub-collection of lamps, exquisitely crafted with Murano glass.

The studio also proudly presented its newest creation for FLOS, Skynest. By weaving filaments of light, this unique lamp seamlessly combines both elegance and innovation.

Delicate textile tubes, integrated with LED lights, reminiscent of thread, are woven throughout the design of the lamp; creating a unique element of surprise, which challenges the bulb lighting archetype. This beautifully innovative lamp is available in four different colourways and in various models including Pendant, Ceiling, Wall and Ceiling to Floor variants.

“We are poets, secretly engineering” – Marcel Wanders, Creative Director, Marcel Wanders studio on Skynest Marcel Wanders studio also launched two new handbags in collaboration with Up To You Anthology: New Classic and Bouquet. This innovative brand creates unique designer bags originated from the creative energy of the most visionary talents in Architecture, Design and Art worldwide, and handcrafted by the best Italian artisans.

The Cristaline dining table designed for FIAM exemplifies subtle beauty and grace by experimenting with the unique technology of melting and forming glass, to create an intricate surface pattern which illustrates geometry and nature through a complex floral pattern translated to an elegant dining table.

Marcel Wanders studio celebrated the launch of its fourth collaboration with Natuzzi. Presenting the Adam collection, with a focus represented by the Adam sofa, born from the desire to integrate sustainable materials with a timeless design inspired by Puglia. Part of the Adam collection are also a dining table and coffee tables made from wood, giving a natural and handcrafted appearance to complete a luxury interior setting.

“We designed this collection not only to reflect on the Puglia region’s natural elements and rich artisanal history, but to give the Natuzzi sofa a second life” – Gabriele Chiave, Creative Director, Marcel Wanders studio The Secret Gardens collection designed for Devon&Devon was created with a holistic and poetic creative approach.

 

Individual elements are all dressed in a seamlessly flowing design and, when placed together, create remarkably immersive settings that produce dreamlike spaces. The first collection in collaboration with the brand consists of wallpapers and small and large ceramic decor slabs (all available in an array of different shades and patterns), a vanity table, three mirrors and a range of ceramic accessories.

“Devon&Devon collection aims to seamlessly connect the words between surfaces and objects, creating a magical illusion of being in a dream made of flowers and nature”. – Gabriele Chiave, Creative Director, Marcel Wanders studio

The limited edition Kaleido of Life Collection for Sahrai, includes three finely handknotted rugs in natural silk and wool. In this collection, Marcel Wanders studio had the freedom to design on a large scale artwork to create impressively massive textile pieces. The rugs are inspired by the natural elements: air (Lush), water (Allure) and earth (Charm). Each of the three elements is depicted through a computerized graphic creativity, which plays with the sensuality of natural forms.

Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, Marcel Wanders studio has made its mission to “create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.” The studio’s work excites, provokes, and polarises, but never fails to surprise for its ingenuity, daring and singular quest to uplift the human spirit, and entertain.

The studio’s chief concern is to bring the human touch back to design, ushering in a ‘new age of design’, in which designer, craftsperson and user are reunited. In this process, Marcel Wanders studio defies design dogma, preferring instead to focus on holistic solutions rather than the technocratic. In this universe, the coldness of industrialism is replaced instead by the poetry, fantasy and romance of different ages, vividly brought to life in the contemporary moment. www.marcelwanders.com

Stephan Tahy to remain Duravit CEO for five more years

The Supervisory Board of Duravit AG has prematurely extended CEO Stephan Tahy’s contract with effect from 1 July, 2022

  • Tahy will continue to help Duravit realize its potential in future
  • Changes will be shaped collectively as a team
  • Record turnover of €604 million last year
  • Becoming a climate-neutral business as a corporate objective

Hornberg, 1 July, 2022: At its meeting on June 28, the Supervisory Board of Duravit AG prematurely and unanimously extended the contract of CEO Stephan Tahy for five more years until 2027. This is not only due to the success of the last financial year, but also because they are convinced that Stephan Tahy and his Executive Board colleagues, Thomas Stammel and Martin Winkle, working with the team as a whole, have been able to build on the successes of the past and will continue to realize Duravit’s full potential in future.

In July 2020, Tahy became CEO of a family business that employs a global workforce of about 7,000 and operates in over 130 countries. His contract was due to run until 2023. “I’m delighted about the early contract extension and the show of trust in me,” said Stephan Tahy. “Only by working together can we achieve our ambitious goals. That’s why we want to take advantage of the fair winds and shape the necessary changes together.” The CEO intends to blaze bold trails in future in collaboration with his Executive Board colleagues and the workforce.

Duravit on a growth trajectory and a climate mission

With Stephan Tahy at the helm as CEO, Duravit managed to generate record turnover of €604 million in the last financial year, a year-on-year increase of some 28 percent. “Despite the difficult circumstances on the global economy, we’re closing in on the billion mark,” he explained.

Duravit remains on track for success: In the first quarter the company generated total turnover of 172.1 million euros(2021: €140 million euros). Growth, including the one-off effect of the Bernstein consolidation, stood at 22.9 percent.

Additionally, Duravit has embarked on a comprehensive climate mission: by 2045 the company from Hornberg in the Black Forest wants to be an entirely climate-neutral business at global level without relying on offsetting or trading CO2 emissions. “None of this would be possible without the team effort of our employees who recreate this success every day afresh despite challenging and changing prevailing conditions. These are the best prerequisites for implementing our corporate vision of ‘We upgrade people’s everyday life’ for all of our stakeholders Board”, says Tahy.

Living rooms and living areas at Casa Decor 2022

04 / 13 / 2022

We continue walking through the spaces of Casa Decor 2022. On this occasion, we want to show you the nine projects, between lounges and living areas , that the participating professionals have devised in this edition. In all of them, you will be able to see how the new trends in decoration and interior design come with groundbreaking ideas, without fear of color or innovative textures, supported by companies and firms in the sector with a vision of the future. Also, we have been able to verify how technology merges without fanfare with craftsmanship, design and art to give free rein to social environments full of comfort and personality, which adapt perfectly to our daily world.They will surprise you!

Nometri Space

On the first floor of the Goya 89 building is Rosa Mexicano,  the space designed by Ana Mª Fernández,  from  Nometri. The interior designer has been inspired by Luis Barragán  to pay homage to color , so that it is possible to feel the energy and presence of the renowned Mexican engineer and architect.

Around this exaltation of color, we find the walls decorated with pictorial works by artists such as Brenda Fridman, Leticia Mezzetta and Débora Sánchez Viqueira, as well as design pieces in the form of sculptures such as the wall radiator, by Tubes Radiatori, and the figures of porcelain that mark the stairs. Different expressions that are added in a multidisciplinary space, which serves as a living room, dining room, art gallery and study.

The dining area is especially cozy, with Momocca furniture arranged on a Kuatro Carpets rug. Here, we also find outstanding contemporary artistic representations such as the small sculpture by Pablo Pérez Ramos, on the table, and the wall sculpture, by Domus NO.4. This space also highlights a studied technical and decorative lighting project that contributes to creating a welcoming effect.

Jaime Jurado Space

With a career spanning more than 20 years in the world of art and interior design, Jaime Jurado not only creates relaxed environments, but also designs and manufactures many of the pieces that bring his projects to life at Casa Decor. In collaboration with the designer  Mónica Bartolessis, this year Jaime offers us a contemporary space with a minimalist look , presided over by a large ceramic mural in which the Purple color stands out , which gives the space its name.

As a backdrop, walls covered with decorative panels by Panespol; floor and door jambs in Dekton by Cosentino, the same material used by the artist in the design of the table. Special mention deserves the balanced lighting of Megaman that makes his works stand out, as well as the elegance of the Aromas del Campo lamps that hang from the ceiling.

BTicino Space by Diego Rodríguez

At Casa Decor 2022, as in the  last edition , BTicino has had the prestigious interior designer Diego Rodríguez, at the head of his studio ‘Concepto DR’, to show the latest generation mechanisms of the Italian firm in a unique atmosphere, in where design and technology converge in a perfect symbiosis.

With his usual sophisticated and eclectic style , where everything is thought out in detail, the interior designer has created a Connected Home , with the most innovative series of Living Now mechanisms, as well as the new Classe 300 EOS with Netatmo video door entry system, with integrated Alexa. BTicino’s unique design and Netatmo’s latest technology together offer us a comfortable and energy efficient connected home.

In addition, in this bright room, the Dekton coatings on the floor, walls and ceiling stand out, as well as the natural oak wood, with which an original decorative structure has been created on the ceiling. The firm Bang & Olufsen has also collaborated with the Beovision Contour television.

Bang & Olufsen Space by Disak Studio

In this edition,  Bang & Olufsen has relied on Disak Studio to create the comfortable and elegant Home Cinema room where you can enjoy the Danish firm’s audiovisual products, including the Beovision Harmony television and the Beolab 28 column speakers.

As soon as you enter the space, before reaching the relaxation area, a piece of furniture with a marble top, by Cupa Stone,   serves as a breakfast and fast food area. An espresso machine from Modbar has been placed on it, and inside it has been installed a practical wine cellar from AEG, with bottles from   Dominio Fournier and Tanqueray No. TEN.

Among the pieces of furniture, a large sofa from the Atlanta collection, from the Alexandra Collection , stands out , a design with a three-position comfort system: sitting, relaxed and reclining. In addition, in the configuration of this space, Disak has used noble materials such as leather and wood, as well as warm textiles.

To cover the walls, Tarimatec wood has been used; Regarsa wallpaper ; and a textile lining by Misia Casamance.   They have also collaborated with Kaymanta, with a comfortable rug; Lutron, with home automation; and Orac Decor with 3D ceiling panels, as well as baseboards and cornices that  enrich the space.

Photos: Felipe Scheffel for Casa Decor 2022

Space Sinmas Studio

Match is the living room designed by Sigfrido Serra and Mateo Climent,which we can see on the third floor. A space inspired by its esteemedterreta, with a color range that refers to its traditions. A backlit decorative fireplace, made ofDektonwith blue veins, matching the base, stands out in the space. While the rear wall was covered with an elaborate ceramic mural, byNais. 

The interior designers’ proposal is an “all-in-one” capable of adapting to modern life: from reading a book in the shelter of the fireplace, to turning the living room into an improvised gym area with Technogym equipment. A subtle play of reflections from the mirrors goes perfectly with silver pieces, such as the Joquer sofa, the curtains, the foot of the side table and the wall-mounted towel rack, a new design by Tubes Radiatori.

Querencia Studio Space

Natural materials are the main protagonists of Recuerdo, the space designed by María Querencia and Maribel López, from Estudio Querencia. The interior designers say they have been inspired by their memories to design a space that allows them to remember those moments, through the experiences of those who live in it.

Organized in two environments: a living room, with a curved architectural staircase, and a kitchen area, which is entered through an opening covered with Neolith stone, the same material that is repeated on the countertop and the sink. The sensation of visual continuity has been achieved with the microcement in the same tone that covers the floor, walls and ceiling. A large fireplace, in front of the comfortable sofa, creates a serene, warm and welcoming atmosphere. Behind the sofa, a backlit bookcase houses several pictorial works by the artist Rocío Domínguez. The Jung company has also collaborated in the space , with electrical mechanisms.

Photo: Lupe Clemente for Casa Decor 2022.

Space Studio Mo

Rastros is the name of the room thatMarta MeliánandClaudia Ribagorda, membersofStudio Mo,have designed on the fourth floor: a space inspired by the Canary Islands, volcanoes and their rock formations, the sea and its waves, wind and erosion …

The interior designers have created a simple and warm atmosphere, in which the use of natural materials such as corrugated sintered stone panels by  Lapitec are of great importance; the clay paint, by Ecoclay, as well as the light wood flooring and the natural fibers in the upholstery of the armchairs and the curtains.

Other details that make reference to the volcanic formations of the Canary archipelago also stand out in this space, such as the black natural stone, which is evident in the Miapetra washbasin and in the set of auxiliary tables that complete the decoration of this space. The mechanisms and home automation of BTcino allow the control of all the facilities of the space, as well as the lighting.

Photo: Nacho Uribesalazar for Casa Decor 2022

Marta Labrador Space

“The reminiscences of past times where the traditional architecture of the French and Madrid attic act as a common thread to give way to an attic with a poetic language of chiaroscuro in a contemporary setting”, this is how the interior designer and plastic artist Marta Labrador explains the essence of his Rhetorical Lights project .

The combination of noble wood such as oak with natural textiles, which emphasize the fondness of a past, and the combination of textiles with different geometries, gives a contemporary character to this attic, which seeks  tranquility and well-being for those who occupy it.

In the design of the space, the lighting project stands out, with the electrical mechanisms by Font Barcelona, ​​as well as the lamps, by LZF Lamps, strategically placed on the ceiling and walls, which create a spectacular play of light and shadow. Among the pieces of furniture, the Ormo’s sofa stands out, with geometric shapes. Also worthy of special attention is the designer radiator by Tubes Radiatori; textiles and household items, from Scalpers Home ; and the occasional tables scattered throughout the space, from Sankore Africa .

Photo: Felipe Scheffel for Casa Decor 2022.

Sara Torrijos Space

Architect by profession and interior designer by vocation, Sara Torrijos has started her career at Casa Decor with the Allure living room, a warm, relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere, which we can see on the fifth floor of Goya 89.

In this space, without a doubt, the excellent work carried out on the main wall stands out, built with clay bricks baked with ancient techniques, in its most sculptural and sensual version. The wall facing the brick wall was covered with mirrors to give the space greater depth. Sara has managed to recreate a serene and calm atmosphere through natural materials and organic forms, such as Ormo’s sofa, in bouclé wool, made to measure and adapted to the curved shapes of the wall.

Boca do Lobo had the opportunity to sit down with one of the most influential names in the international design scene: Krupa Zubin, ZZ Architects‘ Co-Founder! In this exclusive interview and exciting conversation, we were able to discover all the details behind the company’s impressive work! Ready to be inspired?

Exclusive Interview With Krupa Zubin - ZZ Architects' Co-Founder

About ZZ Architects

ZZ Architects is a design firm located in Mumbai that is driven by creativity and innovation. A multidisciplinary award-winning design business managed by Principal Architects Krupa Zubin and Zubin Zainuddin, emphasizes “Attention to Detail” in their creative works. ZZ Architects is an extremely passionate group of Architects, Interior Designers, and Graphic Visualizers who strive constantly to innovate and create amazing interior design projects.

Their wonderful work incorporates modern architecture and interior design projects across many categories and clients spread all around leading cities in India and also internationally cities: each team contains members with expertise in various aspects like project management, visualization, and design development. In this exclusive interview, Krupa Zubin shared with Boca do Lobo a bit more about the studio’s mission, how they handle the pandemic, and where they found the strength to keep working on inspiring projects! Excited? Just keep reading to find more.

Let’s talk about great design: Unraveling creative ideas and thoughts!

How did it all start? How did you decide to create ZZ Architects?

After completing a brief but eventful experience working with a few leading firms, we finally took a leap of faith and decided to formally set up a partnership firm in 2002. We were always keen on creating a firm where we could direct the design narrative and enjoy the process of being involved in every aspect of the design of a project. Over the years, our team of 5 has gradually become an efficient team of over 75 Architects and Designers, however, our role has still remained the same. We enjoy the impact of a different day at work, one that is spontaneous, thrilling, and incredibly rewarding.

Krupa Zubin

Can you tell us what’s your main design mission? How do you define your studio’s style?

We have a well-defined process when it comes to the style of any project and it is intimately connected to the client with whom we are collaborating. Our personal preference has always been to create something fresh and contemporary with a global, timeless appeal.

Krupa Zubin

Exclusive Interview With Krupa Zubin - ZZ Architects' Co-Founder
What makes a design timeless? Which are the key elements?

I think if there are factors that you had to consider, it would be quality, finish, and design, at the end, at the very core that’s what makes a timeless design. We have clients that came back to us, probably for the next office and the next house, our entire work is connected to what we’ve done when we started, so I think that tells us we are on the right path.

Krupa Zubin

How would you describe the relationship of your Studio with your audience? Do you have a special way of communicating/advertising your work? It’s important to get feedback from external sources?

Our constant driving force is the belief and faith our clients have in us and a lot of our work is from repeat clients. Receiving a call from an old client to start brainstorming on something fresh that inspires us is always a treat. Instagram is also a place to share glimpses of work and life, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We feel that our best advocates are our clients, and that ‘social media,’ when used sparingly, is an excellent tool. Working and constantly learning with great clients and brands ensures that you are always performing at your best potential. There is a lot of optimism in the air.

Krupa Zubin

What would you say is the trend at the moment in the design world – creatively speaking?

Our homes have become the main settings of our lives: where we need to unwind and energize ourselves at the same time. We have been forced to slow down and spend time in our homes, this drives a strong desire to really create a space that reflects our inherent selves both aspirational and based on comfort.

Krupa Zubin

How would you describe the typical client of your Studio? What are the main things they ask for? How do you build a professional relationship with them?

Our clientele is diverse and our strength is the method of transparent communication we have with everyone involved in a project. Every first meeting sets up the tone for a project while it helps in the narrative of the design philosophy for the project. Nowadays, social media is so relevant, and when clients come to us, they already have an idea of what they want to build. To us, it’s about creating a real journey for every project, so we’re really close with the design process, and we like to look at a design in every aspect possible, from finishings, materials, collaborations, and artists. In the end, it all comes together when you see the final outcome.

Krupa Zubin

Exclusive Interview With Krupa Zubin - ZZ Architects' Co-Founder
What are your main inspirations in the Design World? And how do they influence your work?

Our passion for travel, reading, and a desire to stay on top of what’s going on in the design industry has opened up new doors for us. We strive to draw inspiration from the diverse experiences we have while traveling. We source extensively from London, Milan, Paris, and Tokyo. Every trip is such an educational trip for us. Movies are also a big source of inspiration, I watch a movie every day, and when you watch a multi-language movie is a great way to understand the design that’s happening in the country. For example, when you watch an anime you are really understanding the Japanese culture, and you can connect to it so well.

Krupa Zubin

How do you approach a hospitality project versus a residential project?

We approach each project based on its location, context, the need of the project, and client specifications. When it comes to hospitality and residential projects, there seems to be a confluence of ideologies. Most of the hospitality projects that we undertake want the experience to feel warm and homely and at the same time, residential homes want to attain the practicality and comfort of premium hospitality spaces. As we work mainly in the luxury sector. it is a great space to be working on and we enjoy the constant unraveling within these categories.

Krupa Zubin

Exclusive Interview With Krupa Zubin - ZZ Architects' Co-Founder
Do you have a favorite project or story about one of your projects?

Every project is clearly associated with anecdotes and each can be a series of stories. All these events come together and help to culture the final project. the relation to clients, materials, and conversations, makes every project an enjoyable experience and milestone. Furthermore, the next two years are also going to be very exciting for the projects that we will complete.

Krupa Zubin

Exclusive Interview With Krupa Zubin - ZZ Architects' Co-Founder
How did you deal with the Pandemic Crisis? Did it change the day-to-day situation of your work? Or did it affect any project in specific?

The pandemic has given us time to introspect, an opportunity to regroup and improve on efficiencies. As a matter of fact, we kept all our projects on hold and restrained ourselves from working from home. We encouraged the teams to just use the time at hand to just stay calm and keep a positive frame of mind. We did not have a single zoom session with our team and just felt that in such uncertain times we needed to support everyone from our team not just financially but also from a viewpoint of being optimistic and ready for the time to come. We had the opportunity to work on and actually design our new studio with a lot of time at hand. It is a new space that we could actually mold as per new requirements and needs that the pandemic also taught us. Personally, we also optimized the use of resources and concentrated more on designs, concepts, and mood boards, all while rethinking how we operated.

Krupa Zubin

Where did you find the resilience to keep working during the most difficult periods of the pandemic? Was it your clients and ongoing projects?

We needed to be patient and make the most of the time at hand. The total engagement of each member of our team with complete faith and support from our clients kept us continuing and flourishing.

Krupa Zubin

Could you describe a few highlights that came from working so much during the Covid crisis?

We spent the time making our processes more structured. Crafted our way into a new era of human connection through the positive use of social media. Besides, it puts a new lens on the organization of the studio and allowed us to dedicate ourselves to enhancing our company’s culture. Finally, set up our new studio space and used the free time to have it up and running in 5 months.

Krupa Zubin

What do you think will be the focus in the design world in the future, especially when this Covid crisis comes to an end?

The cornerstone of this new world will lie in the framework of resilience, humility, empathy, wellbeing, technology and environmentally profound spaces that instill a sense of reassurance and comfort.

Krupa Zubin

Are you working on anything new at the moment? What’s the inspiration behind that project?

What are the main challenges when it comes to a corporate design project?

It is also about time, the kind of time you take to develop a corporate project is probably much faster. We have done corporate projects for developers, investment bankers, marketing companies, and so on. So I think is such a personal thing, and after doing our own working space, we realized that you’re able to give so much more to the team space. Besides, I believe it’s about well-being and empathy.

Exclusive Interview With Krupa Zubin - ZZ Architects' Co-Founder
Boca do Lobo’s essence is connected with the high values of craftsmanship. What’s the Studio’s view on craftsmanship pieces?

The reason why we love collaborating with Boca Do Lobo is for their remarkable pieces with a distinct essence and detailed craftsmanship. Also, Boca Do Lobo’s pieces have a unique synthesis of traditional sensibilities with contemporary designs that are timeless creations. We have always seen that these pieces add a great artistic element to a project. More than recommending a product, we recommend the philosophy behind the product.

Live a movie Christmas with Denon sound bars

Thinking of a good gift for movie and sound lovers in a big way? Whatever the size of your television, the style of your home or your preferences, this Christmas will sound better than ever thanks to the different sound bars proposed by the firm.

November 2021.- Denon, a leading European company in the manufacture of high-quality audio components, has in its catalog the perfect home theater solutions to give or treat yourself to the best sound during the upcoming parties: Home Sound Bar 550, DHT S-216 and DHT-316.

Denon Home Sound Bar 550

At only 65 cm wide, this compact and high-performance bar stands out for integrating advanced acoustic hardware, digital signal processing tuned by experts and premium drivers, everything that a lover of good sound needs in his home, being able to enjoy a excellent 3D surround sound. In this sense, it offers Dolby Atmos and DTS: X 3D surround sound along with 4K video compatibility, creating a realistic 3D cinematic experience.

Likewise, it reproduces high resolution audio from the most popular music streaming services or from the libraries available to the user (via WiFi, AirPlay 2 or Bluetooth). Listeners can play different music in each room or group all the HEOS Built-in and Denon Home devices together to listen to the same music throughout the home or office. Also, it is compatible with Apple AirPlay 2.

Similarly, it provides the convenience of managing both certain functions and audio through different ways, including voice commands through Alexa. The bar is also provided with a control panel that has a proximity sensor that allows it to turn on automatically when the hand is passed over it, illuminating the controls.

On the other hand, and thanks to a recent update, Denon Home 550 now allows you to use Home 150/250 or 350 speakers as rear speakers or use the DSW-1H wireless subwoofer for more spectacular and deep bass. Also, it is compatible with the HEOS ecosystem for multi-room sound.

Finally, in terms of connectivity, it has two HDMI ports, one of them compatible with eARC (Enhanced Audio Remote Channel) that achieves superior sound quality through a single HDMI connection to the TV, a digital optical input and a port USB to connect memories with song lists.

Denon Home Sound Bar 550 RRP: 649 euros (VAT included)

Denon DHT S-216

With an elegant and minimalist appearance, this ultra-thin and compact soundbar, just 6 cm high and less than 90 cm wide, hides a technology capable of transforming any space into a true sound show. It integrates two drivers for mids, two tweeters for the treble and two subwoofers built into the bar for the low frequencies. Furthermore, it is capable of decoding Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks.

Advertisements

This is completed by various preset EQ modes optimized for movies, music listening, and night mode.

By using Bluetooth technology, you can wirelessly stream audio from files on smartphones, tablets, or computers. Add to that full compatibility with current HD and 4K televisions via HDMI UHD 4K. At the same time, it quickly connects to the TV and other devices via an HDMI ARC port (with audio return channel) and has a digital optical input and an AUX input.

Denon DHT-S216 RRP: 219 euros (VAT included)

Denon DHT S-316

It also has Bluetooth technology to wirelessly transmit the audio of the files contained in smartphones, tablets or computers. Thanks to the advanced psychoacoustic algorithms used for virtual surround processing, this sound is also reproduced with surround surround effects.

Denon DHT-S316 RRP: 279 (VAT included)

Corporate profile

Today, it is a world-renowned company thanks to its innovative, cutting-edge and high-quality products. DENON has a long history as a provider of technological innovations. A good example of this is having carried out the development and being the first to commercialize PCM digital audio.
