A new generation needs a new icon
Small table-top radios in the home no longer need be synonymous with mono sound, dials, and wooden panelling.
Tangent, the award-winning audio manufacturer from Denmark, has paired with Jacob Jensen Design to create a revolution within the compact radios we place in rooms where large music systems are unnecessary.
Tangent Fjord combines the minimalistic design of Jacob Jensen Design with Tangents superior technology and stereo sound. The result is a unique and sculptural combination of form and function.
Radio for eyes, ears and fingers
Choosing a radio for your home has until now often meant a compromise between technical features, acoustic performance, ease of operation and aesthetic quality. With the launch of Tangent Fjord, this compromise is eliminated for the first time, allowing you to bring home a radio that satisfies demanding ears, critical eyes, and curious fingers.
Tangent Fjord is a small radio with a big sound. It appears as a mini-malistic sculpture in the home, inviting operation all by itself. The high-quality materials and seductive finger-touch panel make Tangent Fjord a physical expression of the satisfaction we experience, when quality in all aspects makes form and function unite on a higher level.
Artwork with content
Under Tangent Fjord’s sculptural exterior and inviting operation, Tangent’s well-known and uncompromising technology resides. Tangent Fjord is one of the few compact table-top radios on the market that plays music as it was recorded: in stereo. At the same time, Tangent has succeeded in integrating a certified iPhone docking solution (Made for iPhone). The popular multi-function phone can thus be connected directly to the radio. This places high demands on the technical abilities of the manufacturer, and with the Fjord, Tangent has once again proved that they are able to compete with the world’s best when it comes to modern audio technologies.
The new Tangent Fjord is released in two versions: an FM version and a DAB+/FM version. Both have a built-in CD-player as well as iPod/iPhone dock, and have minimal power consumption in standby. During operation, power consumption is reduced by the built-in reaction and proximity sensor. The sensor shuts down the display and operation panel, when these functions are not in use, waking them to life again, as soon as you approach the radio. So by choosing the Tangent Fjord you also show environmental responsibility for our global resources.
About Jacob Jensen Design
For more than 50 years, Jacob Jensen Design has been known for ultramodern and minimalistic design, changing our perception of how a music system could look as far back as the 1960’s. Several of Jacob Jensen’s timeless designs have achieved the status of international classics, and are represented with 16 creations in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. It was therefore a natural step in Tangent’s development to cooperate with one of the uppermost representatives for audio design and Scandinavian design in general.
