More Than Meets The Eye: The New Oslo Wireless Speaker By Vifa

Posted in Commentary with tags on October 14, 2017 by itnerd

Being genuine. Being authentic. Being essential. Vifa’s new loudspeaker has been carefully modelled around the Vifa brand’s core values.


The design language is distinctively Nordic with an intriguing, raw simplicity, but Oslo is so much more than meets the eye. Designers and engineers at Vifa have indeed collaborated to obtain an impressive, large-scale sound from this uniquely ear-blowing Bluetooth loudspeaker – while still keeping it at an accessible, acceptable size.

Tailor-made quality

Oslo is a unique loudspeaker-experience, but still it carries the same DNA as the other loudspeakers in Vifa’s acclaimed Nordic series. The materials have been carefully chosen in order to convey the core value of true Nordic authenticity: A special-designed textile cover from Kvadrat gives the loudspeaker a genuinely groomed look. And its solid aluminum frame underlines the idea of a robust premium product. Colorwise, Oslo is available in a range of timeless shades: Sunset Red, Sand Yellow, Ocean Blue, Ice Blue, Anthracite Grey, and Pebble Grey. Finally, the discretely embossed logo and embroidered interface that has become Vifa’s signature in the Nordic series, allow Oslo to blend discretely in to any interior.

Years of experience

Oslo is the fourth wireless loudspeaker launched by Danish manufacturer Vifa in only three years. It continues to build on the solid experience and the proud craftsmanship of the Vifa brand that has its roots back to the early 1930’s where the company was founded. The strive for exquisite quality and superior, technological know-how has been dusted off over the later years where a stronger focus on product-design and Nordic elegance has been added to the Vifa products. Without compromising on the authentic sound which has been a core value for the brand throughout the years.

Distribution and price

Oslo is available at and through selected dealers. The recommended retail price is 399 EUR (incl. VAT).
