BAIA MARE, Romania – December 8, 2022 – Meze Audio, Romanian-based company developing premium audiophile headphones and earphones, fuses art and high-end audio technology in their newest headphone – EPOQUE.
A limited-edition of Elite, their flagship headphone, Epoque pays homage to one of the most iconic artistic movements – Art Nouveau. Limited to 100 units worldwide, this headphone is Meze’s timeless reminder of “La Belle Epoque”.
“This particular style of art had a significant importance throughout my creative journey, and I wanted to express my admiration for it through my own craft. Much like the artists of that time, we are inspired by shapes, textures and patterns from nature. We try to revive creativity and bring genuine artistic value to a world of mass production. Epoque is the perfect reflection of our artistic sensibilities.” – Antonio Meze, Lead Designer and Founder of Meze Audio.
Made from CNC milled aluminum, the headphone frame features a sophisticated finish in shades of gray, inspired by iconic works of architecture, paintings and designs that defined the Art Nouveau movement.
Shapes that resemble stems and flowers are hand-applied with precision on the cups, as well as on the carbon fiber headband, giving the impression of an infinite flow of sinuous lines. The painting process is meticulous and unrushed, with each frame taking more than a day to complete, before final assembly.
Made for passionate audiophiles, art enthusiasts and collectors, as part of Meze Audio’s Art Gallery collection, Epoque is now available for $5000 on mezeaudio.com and in selected dealers’ stores.
