Helsinki

Vifa combines the optimistic elegance of Nordic design with luxury materials, wireless Bluetooth mobility, and stunning quality of sound. Based in Denmark, Vifa’s portable speakers represent a leap forward in the way we enjoy portable music in this rare object: an electronic device built without compromise in either form or function.

At the heart is a wonderfully articulate speaker system, which instantly announces a new caliber of portable sound. Thick sheets of bass and nimble high end operate in the service of authentic sound expression, clarifying rather than reshaping the tone of the original recording. Vifa has its company origins in wholesale speaker manufacturing, supplying many top audiophile brands since the 1930’s. The same speakers are now employed here for the first time in a vertically-integrated series focused on end-to-end quality of manufacture. Vifa has since won Germany’s prestigious iF Gold Award and Red Dot Design Award for the series.

Helsinki features gorgeous fabric by Kvadrat, Europe’s leading manufacturer of fine textiles, whose materials often make their way onto our favorite luxury furniture at Hammer and Spear. The look and feel of these textiles lend Vifa’s speakers a sense of place in the modern home as much as in a fine automobile, enhancing the fluidity between spaces already promoted through Bluetooth technology. Helsinki also features a special leather from Swedish leather legend Tärnsjö Garveri.

 

As a bonus, please enjoy FREE drop shipment from Vifa on all orders placed with Hammer and Spear!
