DESIGN STORY

Design by Ross Lovegrove, sound by KEF

When visionary designer Ross Lovegrove joined forces with KEF the mighty MUON was born. Continuing this vibrant collaboration, MUO is a speaker that inherits both MUON’s sculptural organic form and breakthrough acoustic technologies. With each shade of the six striking matte colour options embodying its own character - from the delicate glow of the Sunset Orange to the ferocity of the Gunmetal Grey - MUO is the last word in art with a purpose.

About Ross Lovegrove

It's no coincidence that the MUO echoes the sculptural form of KEF's iconic MUON speakers, because design guru Ross Lovegrove teamed up with our engineers on both. Using premium quality materials throughout, the unique and satisfyingly hefty structure they developed eliminates unwanted cabinet vibration - all you hear is the rich, breathtakingly detailed output of the drivers. The shape itself has been expertly designed to allow optimal sound projection into the room and is complemented by five suitably cool finishes: Horizon Gold, Storm Grey, Light Silver, Neptune Blue and Sunset Orange.
