Inspired by the "Folle" an archaic
sound object, which has been used
in the Swiss alps for centuries to

The L242 Loudspeaker is ideal for people looking for a sophisticated sound experience
as well as timeless design.
The design of the L242 is not only driven by the distinctive shape. As important for the
appearance is the choice of materials. The
combination of composite cement, wood, metal
and fabric create a very sensual melange, nice
in look and feel.
The contrasting of the used materials is part
of the charm. The warm, irregular and rough
material of the housing compared with the
smooth, cool and delicate stand gives the
product an unique visual character and haptic experience.
This combination makes the product fit most
modern living environments. A sound object

The design of the L8 and L10 makes

We took full advantage of the possibilities and properties of fiber cement.
It allowed us to create a very
compact and stylish speaker.
The upright speaker body is elegant and robust at the same time, which
contrasts well with the filigree stand.
As with any Vonschloo product we
wanted a 360° design being attractive from every side and therefore allowing this sound object to be placed

Beauty from within.
The rounded cone shape, gives great stiffness to the housing and avoids sound reflections. Combined with high performance components of the highest quality make the object
sound neutral and allows for fatigue free listening.
The cooperation with Rowen of Switzerland gives these loudspeaker a performance
which drags the listener right into the music experience.
The L8 speaker is a two way system delivering a frequency response from 25-24'000 Herz.
The closed cabinet design "Acoustic Suspension" allows the user to place the
speaker freely, even close to the walls.
The L10 features the Rowen Linear Motion Transformer. This transducer for
high and medium frequencies stays free of coloration and has a very natural sound.
The Bi-Polar tweeter on the rear ads airiness and depth to the sound stage.
Aesthetics and Performance
The L8 and L10 Loudspeakers are ideal
for people looking for the extraordinary sound experience in a timeless design.
The design of the L8 and L10 is not only driven
by the distinctive shape. As important for the appearance is the choice of materials.
The combination of composite cement, wood, metal and fabric create a very sensual melange, nice to the eye and to the touch.
The decision to use composite cement was triggered by the fact that concrete is one of
the best materials available for acoustic cabinets. But only the mix with fibres and air make it a usable. We invested a lot of time in exploring
the possibilities of this interesting material
before coming up with an appropriate design
for the material involved.
The warm, irregular and rough material of
the housing compared with the smooth, cool and delicate stand gives the product an unique
visual character and haptic experience.
The L8 and L10 are two different loudspeaker configurations, which share the same housing, magnetic grill and stand.
The difference between L8 and L10 lies in the drivers and
sound concept. Both versions have high quality wire connectors which can be used for wire, spades or banana plugs.
The L8 and L10 are stereo passive loudspeakers. Therefore they will be
delivered as a pair of two.
The loudspeaker must be connected to an amplifier and both of them should ideally be positioned in the same angle and
distance to the listener.
