Samsung Serif TV

February 20, 2016 · 0 Comments

twentytwentyone is one of a limited number of retailers showing Serif, the new television from Samsung designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

The Bouroullec brothers have radically reconfigured the flatscreen smart TV, creating a product that belongs as much to the world of design and furniture as it does to that of electronics.

The slimline unit flares at the top to create a narrow shelf and at the bottom to provide a sturdy base. Echoing typographic features, these projections give Serif its name.

“Like typographers designing a letter, we studied both the object and its interaction with the space around it,” say Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

Serif may be placed on a shelf or media unit or on a four-legged base that creates a free-standing unit.

A fabric panel magnetically attached to the back of the television allows for easy access, concealing ports and plugs while lending the set a clean and uncluttered profile from every angle.
