DESIGN STORY

Metal art - inspired by the mighty MUONs

With each shade of the six striking matte color options embodying its own character — From the delicate glow of the Sunset Orange to the ferocity of the Gunmetal Grey, the MUO speakers are the ultimate functional decor. With features “trickled down” from its predecessor, the MUONs, designed by British designer Ross Lovegrove, featuring an artistic miniature version of KEF’s greatest innovation - enjoy the convenience of portable wireless speakers without sacrificing audio quality.
 

Designed by Ross Lovegrove and engineered by KEF, the MUO Metal has a distinctive polished-chrome body, featuring a subtle hairline finish which requires special expertise to achieve. Its sleek, reflective exterior echoes the look of the original MUON and exudes Lovegrove’s unique and timeless style.
