Jacob Jensen, Beolit Portable Radio, 1970

“Bang & Olufsen (the Volvo of electronics) have [one transistor] radio so elegant you can’t tell what it is, a completely anonymous plastic box that might well contain paper tissues, did it not appear to have a slide rule glued to one edge. That’s not the real trannie market, of course,; that’s just an executive toy for the man who already has hi-fi” – The art historian Rayner Banham in New Society 1974 Source
