DesignLine HD TV

The project

The DesignLine 2013 is a 3D Smart TV with a 1400 Hz Full HD resolution. Without cabinet, TV stand, leg or even frame, the TV seems no more than an immense sheet of glass that goes from black to transparent.


The chosen design solution shows guts. The design introduces a new concept of the television. It is amazing how such a fragile device can virtually invisibly accommodate all technical equipment.


The Design Line jury caught a glimpse of the future. The progressive and groundbreaking design, made with courage, merges different things in one. Therewith, the role of television redefined: both physically (the increasingly buried device into an art object that may stand in the interior) and in the application. A futuristic design that makes the jury curious about the next step.
