This university project explores how the design values of a highly regarded audio/video company would inform the redesign of an ordinary, non-musical device used by Bang and Olufsen craftspeople.
1. Destructive erasure: erasing an errant pencil mark
2. Focusing erasure: erasing the unimportant to highlight

The Bang and Olufsen BeoScribe is designed to be used by the craftspeople at Bang and Olufsen during the final stages of assembly.
As the musician’s performance inherently involves their audience, the craftsperson cements Bang and Olufsen’s relationship to the customer when they engrave their signature into the final polished piece.
