While some TV manufacturers decided to join the race for the thickness of the panels and their resolution Ultra High Definition, the company Philips has decided to rethink the concept of the TV and presented a line of DesignLine TV, the essence of which is the literal integration of TV interior houses and apartments.

Most HDTV-panels are actually from the display itself and the stand on which the display is installed. But in the case of 46-inch and 55-inch TVs Philips DesignLine TV stand is missing. Philips advocates minimalism and therefore performs a single function stand sheet of glass that allows you to set the TV to the wall at an angle.

If viewing angles such panels are chosen correctly, the TV viewing will be much more comfortable for people who, for example, watching him sit on the floor or have low sofas.


Chief designer Philips Rod White (Rod White) said that the current trend is dictated by the desire to make people his technique just follow the plane in which the person is located, and at the same time, it fit perfectly into the interior. Senior Designer Rettenbaker Frank (Frank Rettenbacher) adds:

“We really want to move away from the traditional language used in the design of today’s televisions. We want to create a single large sheet of glass, which will look amazing against the wall without any frames and supports. ”

Washed and Rettenbakera idea about how to look TV, repeating almost verbatim the words of Apple designer Jony Ive, who once said that it is important not to allow the formulation of physical frames and limits the potential impact on the design of the product.

Goal line DesignLine TV is the ability to fit perfectly to any interior. But here we are talking not only about the design, but also as the most TV. Portal The Verge, for example, believes that the picture at the Philips TV is not as clear as that of the same panels Samsung or Panasonic. Although no one does not exclude the possibility that in the case of the new line that may change.

Be that as it may, the first such televisions should be on sale in June of this year. Their price is not reported.
