Outline

This unprecedented black and narrow bezel design makes the bezel look like it is one with the screen when the TV is turned off. It increases the level of user concentration when the TV is turned on, thus providing a rich, emotional experience to the user. The diamond cutting on the transparent area that connects to the black bezel showcases a different color according to light reflection. It absorbs the surrounding colors and displays mystical colors. This is a 'TV of light' that is suitable for any interior decor.

Evaluation

Even when it was shown in the judging suite this Samsung television made a powerful, overwhelming impression. The black panel is sandwiched between two transparent acrylic sheets and looks different depending on the angle you view it from, contributing to the product's aesthetic impact. We admired the way the company's culture encourages thoroughgoing attention to detail, even though the product's primary purpose is simply to display images.
