FOCAL and TOURNAIRE have joined forces and have embarked on a common adventure. These two French companies with the highest levels of expertise in their fields have produced a unique work of art: UTOPIA by TOURNAIRE, the most prestigious headphones in the world.
UTOPIA by TOURNAIRE is the fruit of a unique partnership: the perfect symbiosis of Focal, a manufacturer of high-fidelity speaker drivers and loudspeakers for more than 35 years, and TOURNAIRE, a jeweller renowned for many years for its symbolic and atypical jewellery. Both companies are famous throughout France and worldwide for their exceptional expertise. They are also both “Living Heritage Companies” (having received the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant label). FOCAL and TOURNAIRE have joined forces to form an exceptional partnership. Together, they have created a most original pair of headphones: UTOPIA by TOURNAIRE.
VERY HIGH-END HEADPHONES…
It all began with the reference headphones “Utopia”: launched last June, these high-fidelity headphones designed and manufactured in France feature exclusive FOCAL technology. These are the world’s first audiophile headphones on the market to be equipped with a totally open-back full-range speaker driver with a pure Beryllium “M”- shaped dome. The sleek design, the high-end materials and the genuine lambskin leather ear cushions make them very high-end headphones. “Utopia” has already become a reference on the market.
..CUSTOMISED WITH JEWELS
The design of these exceptional headphones was customised by renowned jewellers Maison TOURNAIRE. The result is a unique product with new aesthetics designed and crafted by father and son, Philippe and Mathieu Tournaire. It bears the mark of the Trilogy, the symbol of Tournaire jewellers, which represents the three stages of life: the past, the present and
the future. This universal symbol links the past, the present, and the future, represented respectively by the raw square, the triangle and the circle of abundance, achievement and perfection… The Trilogy is made of 18 karat yellow gold mounted with a total of 6 carats of diamonds, entirely hand-crafted in the TOURNAIRE jewellers’ workshops.
AN OBJECT OF FASCINATION
This craftsman jewellery required more than a year’s work, from the design to the final assembly, resulting in a truly remarkable work of art. This makes these headphones the most prestigious and the most expensive in the world: UTOPIA by TOURNAIRE.
UTOPIA BY TOURNAIRE
This technological and artistic masterpiece rests on its own dedicated stand representing a face composed of the three shapes of TOURNAIRE’s Trilogy sculpted in yellow bronze and hand burnished.
This masterpiece is available at the price of €100,000 for the headphones alone, or for €110,000 with its dedicated stand. A total of eight units, numbered from 1 to 8, will be produced by the jewellers and available on order.
Part of the profits from the sales of the headphones and stand will be donated to the P’tit LOUIS association, dedicated to saving 8-year-old Louis Biscini who su ers from a rare degenerative disease: spinal muscular atrophy type 1.
