Press Release   •   May 15, 2014 08:00 GMT

         

Asgard™ is the name of a new series of audio lifestyle products designed and developed by the Danish company Clint Digital to fill the home with music. The first two products are just about to be released: the wireless speaker ODIN and the wireless and portable speaker FREYA.


The story behind Asgard™

In Norse mythology Asgard is the world of the Norse Gods and Goddesses, known for their toughness, endurance and power. But also quickness and simplicity are descriptive for these fabled and impressive Viking Gods.

Based on the myths the Danish audio/video and design company Clint Digital has developed the audio series Asgard™ by going back to basics with a clear approach for materials, design and functionality. The characteristics are reflected into all aspects of the audio products, from high-quality materials especially selected from top vendors right down to the simplicity of design and usability avoiding all unnecessary features and buttons.


The Danish Asgard™ design 

The Asgard™ series is designed by Phillip Bodum.

Phillip graduated from Parsons The New School for Design in New York where he currently lives and works. With Phillip´s strong roots in Denmark, he has a great dedication to details, materials and functionality.


The Asgard™ concept

As a complete series of lifestyle audio products Asgard™ is designed to fill the home with music. User friendliness and functionality are keywords for the Asgard™ products, and they fit into every home - whether a classic home or a trendy modern home decor. The Asgard™ speakers provide soft, pleasant and detailed sound, and bring to the user the convenience of flexible audio products configured into multiroom placement, with streaming functionality based on simple setup through the App.

ODIN is perfectly suited for the living room, providing an astonishingly great and room filling sound with its 2 speakers and 2 tweeters inside the speaker cabinet. ODIN offers an amazing good sound experience, in any volume playing.   


The triangular shape of ODIN is designed for placement on the floor in a corner of a large room. The sound is pushed from the speaker towards the walls and will make the music reflect into the entire room.

The iconic holes in the metal speaker grill, are consistent with the design of the other speakers in the Asgard™ series. The cabinet of ODIN is made of high quality metal, which makes the speaker a lot more durable. This together with the Charcoal Grey or Chalk White color makes ODIN look stunning. Elegant control buttons are placed on top of the device for easy and convenient operation.

A floor stand in full aluminum is available for ODIN, and will make the sound spread perfectly into the room. Also the floor stand brings ODIN up to a more convenient height for users to operate the buttons on the speaker.
