The Helsinki has a lot of features in common with both Copenhagen and Stockholm products. The materials have been carefully chosen in order to convey the core value of true Nordic authenticity:
- A special-designed textile cover from Kvadrat that lets sound pass perfectly through its woollen threads. Furthermore, the fabric is water-repellent hence assuring both indoor- and outdoor use.
- A leather strap from Swedish Leather manufacturer Tärnsjö Garveri.
- A solid aluminum frame, molded in one piece in order to avoid assembly marks or frail spots.
- Colorwise, Helsinki is available in a range of highly attractive shades: Willow Green, Misty Blue, Dusty Rose and Sandstone Grey.
Vifa’s Nordic design partner, design-people, has continued the same, understated design-line that they established for Copenhagen and Stockholm loudspeakers.: A discretely embossed logo and an embroidered interface making the loudspeaker blend discretely in to any context, be it for interior or exterior use.
Years of experience
The contemporary Helsinki builds on the solid experience and the craftsmanship of the Vifa brand. The manufacturer has its roots back to the early 1930’s where the company was founded. The strive for exquisite quality and superior, technological know-how have been dusted off over the later years where a stronger focus on design paired with Nordic aesthetics 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.
