Premium, next generation, 2018

Piega, Switzerland

In 2018, Piega launched the new generation of their speaker series “Premium”. Its design is a collaboration between the manufacturer based at Lake Zurich and designer Stephan Hürlemann. “It was important to me to consider the formal revision of this archetype as an evolution, rather than a revolution. That’s why I focused on formulating the details in such a clear way that they, in sum, convey something new,” says Stephan Hürlemann. In order to make the new Premium even slimmer than its predecessor, Stephan Hürlemann changed its parabolic shape into an elliptical one, narrowing the column towards the baffle. In addition, the grille cover has been recessed flush with the grille, which makes the speaker’s overall appearance even more delicate. A logo field below the front grille creates a distinct base finish. The feet of the floor-standing loudspeaker have also been redesigned and now provide enhanced stability.
