Samsung QLED Stand Competition, 2017
The stand design is conceived to express the beauty of balance. We want to produce a stand that is stable and secure through the use of a counterbalance. If the Samsung QLED TV is tilted or nudged the stand will undulate gently and stabilise in the neutral vertical position.
The stand was developed to allow maximum user flexibility. The TV can be rotated 360 degrees and moved around the room allowing design freedom. The brushed metal lightweight material gives a slick modern finish, which can be easily incorporated to any interior. The base has a subtle change of material with a silicon finish, which has a dual purpose of expressing the counterweight within the stand and acting as a soft buffer between the stand and the flooring to avoid scratching. Additionally, the base’s curved form has a small slice to create a flat contact with the floor below and ensure an absolute vertical and still positioning of the TV.
