Nation Imports was founded on the belief that high fidelity music, technology and modern design can co-exist.

It seemed natural then that we would begin in Denmark, the epicentre of midcentury modern and the birthplace of Peter Jensen, inventor of the moving coil speaker. Today many of our brands hail from Denmark, all of which deliver outstanding performance and beautiful design, the trademark of all our products. Electronics from the UK and hand crafted headphones from Germany complete our line-up.

Founded in 2011, we have grown from our passion for music and design to include residential, commercial, architectural, immersive surround and professional products from some of the most recognized brands in Europe to our home here in Canada.

A good vibe

Davone loudspeakers are fluent and organically shaped, with a mid century twist. This has become Davone’s signature mark. Even though each model is unique, they all come from the same origin. A luxurious mid century decor home. Just imagine teak wooden wall panelling, a woolen carpet, a beautiful colour balance, a comfortable Eames lounge chair. In short, a stylish place in a warm and eye pleasing way. A place where you want to be. A place that gives off a good vibe.

Our handcrafted models are made using techniques that have been largely unchanged since laminated bended wood products first appeared in the middle of the last century. Multiple thin wood laminates are bend into their final shape in a press, and heat transforms the glue in between the layers into a glass-like state. A process that requires constant attention to get the best results. The three dimensional complexity of our models requires extra care while cooling down. During final assembly, small adjustments still need to be made because each part is slightly different. In the end we want to be proud of what we make. Because we know that our customers appreciate the extra effort that goes into making all Davone products.
