Philips TV and Bowers & Wilkins’ exclusive partnership is already recognized as producing the best performing high-end sets – now 2019 Design Award wins show how European design experts love the next sets too!
Amsterdam, March 25, 2019 – TP Vision’s focus on premium quality performance and European craftsmanship has paid dividends once again. The design of three of the sets from the company’s 2019 Philips TV range has received the highest official recognition by winning five new Design Awards from both the prestigious iF and Red Dot design competitions.
The awards also validate TP Vision’s partnership approach with European specialist brands, with one of the new sets created as part of the multi-year agreement with British audio legends Bowers & Wilkins and another new award-winning set with the world-renowned Danish artisans from Georg Jensen.
The awards include both Red Dot and IF Design Awards for the new OLED+934 and the new OLED 854 and an iF Award for the new 9104 model.
The iF and Red Dot awards are given in recognition of outstanding design achievement and each competition receives over 5000 submissions from nearly 60 countries representing the best of design in their respective categories. The awards criterion includes consideration for: innovation, formal quality, functionality and ecological compatibility.
Commenting on the new awards, Rod White, Chief Designer for TP Vision said: “We continue to offer the best picture and sound performance through our ongoing partnership with Bowers & Wilkins while still offering minimalist, functional designs using real materials executed with real finesse. I believe our co-operation with our leading European brand partners is delivering truly stand-out products into a market where our competitors struggle to differentiate their product.”
Philips OLED+934 TV: Stunning picture and sound performance meets minimalist design
The Philips OLED+934 is the latest product in an ongoing series of high-end sets planned as part of TP Vision’s multi-year partnership with leading audio experts Bowers & Wilkins, a collaboration that has created another stunning TV that offers market-leading performance for both picture and sound quality.
This new performance level has been achieved in a set offering a minimal silhouette thanks to integration of the premium sound bar as the TV’s stand. The soundbar is covered in a custom, acoustically transparent premium cloth from Danish brand Kvadrat and features a trapezoid shape designed to angle the speakers for better sound dispersion into the room.
The super-slim OLED+934 features premium chrome end plates for the sound bar that matches a chrome frame bezel and a single metal spine that both attaches the sound system to the screen and supports the set when table mounted.
Philips OLED 854 TV – super slim, superior performance
OLED technology is widely acknowledged to offer the best picture quality available and Philips OLED TVs have won numerous awards and independent tests to be justifiably considered the best-of-the-best.
Latest in the Philips line is the new OLED 854 featuring a minimalist, super-slim frame with a chrome bezel supported by an elegant dark chrome T-bar swivel stand just 30mm high and running for two-thirds of the width of the set – to give impression of a floating screen.
The OLED 854’s components and sound system – plus the unique Ambilight technology – have all been neatly integrated into a slim cabinet towards the bottom rear of the screen, emphasising the set’s extremely thin profile.
Philips 9104 TV – Celebrating European Craftsmanship
The Philips 9104 TV is a high-performance LCD set created in partnership with Georg Jensen to celebrate European creativity and craftsmanship.
The slimline 9104 features a black brushed aluminium bezel on three sides of the set with a glossy polished metal bottom side. The lower bezel matches the two elegant, highly-polished, blade feet with their flawless finish and unique silver blue hue to produce a distinct TV design that recreates the heritage and artistry of Georg Jensen.
The high-gloss, highly polished design extends to the jointly branded slimline, wand remote control.
