Leading brands are compelled now more than ever to turn out cutting-edge viewing choices for consumers. The competition is fierce. And this is good news for interior decorators and homeowners. High expectations were already in place for brilliant engineering with aesthetic versatility for surrounding decor. But now the requirement for electronics is to completely disappear when not in use. Or…to morph into something else entirely.
Take a look at our exciting list of conversation-worthy art pieces for flawlessly adorning the most bespoke living spaces.
Japanese Art from B&O
The new Beovision Harmony has been described as “Japanese Sculptural Art” when not in use. It sits not inconspicuously behind twin oak panels, like a character hiding its face with its hands. Upon command from the dedicated remote, the screen rises up and the panels fan out, folding down with smooth quiet precision. The screen is a generous 77 inches. B&O’s statement piece is a fusion of phenomenal audio and sharp imagery. More than just art, the performance is cinematic and sound excellence for any room in your house.
The Harmony has seamless pairing compatibility with Beolab speakers such as Beolab 18, 50 or 90. The technology supports Apple AirPlay 2 and integrates Chromecast for streaming and Bluetooth. It also features preloaded apps, such as Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime Video.
Barely There from LG
If you are excited about impossibly thin technology, then LG’s W8 Wallpaper OLED TV is a fabulous choice. The W8 attaches to the wall via a magnet structure and it is self-contained, only millimeters thick, and comes with a Dolby Atmos soundbar.
There are a few exciting features about the W8 compared to its W7 predecessor. The LG Alpha 9 Processor is faster. And it has an extremely accurate color profile. It runs on the ThinkQ Smart TV platform and is loaded with Google Assistant. So you can use voice control to ask your TV questions or control home automation features.
Panasonic’s Masterful Disguise
Still, in the concept stages, Panasonic’s transparent OLED technology was unveiled at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. Disguised as a glass cabinet, it sits on a shelf, doubling as a display for all varieties of decor. When switched on, the glass panel becomes an OLED display and can also provide the option of ambient lighting when not in use. Panasonic has shown its sensitivity to the modern concept of technology hiding in plain sight.
Concept TV’s are a fabulously functional adornment for your home, no matter the design theme. You can have a television when you want it. And make it disappear when you don’t.
