Its hard not to fall in love with the Beovision Avant at first sight. Designed by Bang & Olufsen veteran Torsten Valeur, this design offers you seamless perfection, without the knick knacks. The almost clockwork-like coordination of the television is hard to ignore, and its minimalistic design is eye-catching. 

The flawless flow of the glass screen into the high-gloss, black anodised aluminium frame is a feat of incredible subtlety and detail. Timeless by design, this entertainment system enabless you to completely get rid of a concept of a TV cabinet. The floor stand offers you up to 90 degrees of flexibility for apt viewing pleasure. If you choose to mount the television on a TV table, it will appear to float from the table and cleverly hide the stand from the naked eye. The TV just comes to life by lifting to an upright position, allowing the speakers beneath it to unfold, almost like unwrapping a present. 

If you choose to mount the system on the wall, it pivots up to 60 degrees from the wall. The larger 75” and 85” version pivots as much as 19 degrees from its outset. Sleek and suave, the rear part hides connectors, unsightly card readers, vents, screws and cables out of sight, along with providing a port for your Apple TV. Resembling high-end artwork, the Beolab 18 pays testament to its predecessor, the legendary Beolab 8000. A wireless speaker, it offers you art with sound. Meshing artistic technique with technical precision, this piece of art and sound deserves a space at any audiohead’s home.
