Bang & Olufsen

Exclusive audio and video manufacturer, Bang & Olufsen, selected rischegroup to complete the fit-out of its brand new North of England flagship store in Wilmslow, Cheshire.

The Brand

Bang & Olufsen produce beautifully designed products which can seamlessly integrate with a selection of household items. This means that, with the use of Bang & Olufsen’s bespoke technology, its customers can control everything in their home including blinds, speakers, heating and televisions. It was this aspect of its products that Bang & Olufsen was keen to incorporate into the new space, to create a fully immersive experience for its customers. This was a challenge that rischegroup was thrilled to take on.

The Project

To create this atmospheric and innovative environment, the rischegroup team worked around the clock to implement a bespoke KNX intelligent building control system, which was integrated with the space’s air conditioning, blind, audio and AV systems to facilitate the full demonstration of the products on display. With the addition of a state-of-the-art cinema room and solid oak herringbone flooring laid by artisan craftsmen, the rischegroup created an extra special space which Bang & Olufsen’s customers have come to expect from the luxury brand.

It was important to Bang & Olufsen that the company’s corporate identity was incorporated throughout the new space, and rischegroup worked closely alongside the Bang & Olufsen team to deliver this throughout the entirety of the design & fit-out process.

Project Delivered on Time

The fit-out was completed within the tight eight week turnaround time. The main challenge of the project was the poor condition of the space’s original flooring, when it came to getting power and data to the required areas in the store. Innovative solutions were devised to get around this problem, along with the task of amending the building’s exterior for the new signage.

Throughout the entire project, rischegroup worked in close partnership with Bang & Olufsen’s industry-leading manufacturing partners to ensure that the fit-out was delivered seamlessly and in time for the space to be presented at its exclusive launch night.
