Samsung and Armani HDTV spotted in Milan
Samsung and Armani are no strangers; their fruitful partnership is taking them towards a new frontier, they are launching a new premium HDTV. The TV was spotted on the opening day of the Milan International Furniture Fair. The TVs come in 46- and 52-inches; the 1080p LCDs feature Samsung’s 100Hz display technology. The TV design take inspiration from Giorgio Armani’s ’08/’09 Armani/Casa home furnishings collection; inspired by Eileen Gray and redolent of Hollywood’s Golden Age. The idea is to showcase the TV as a part of the design element of the room and not blend it in.
The 42-inch model features a stylish backlit remote control (a smaller, pebble shaped remote is also included) and a specially designed front-mounted power switch. This model is expected to launch in Europe, Korea and Russia mid-summer, followed by the 52-inch in late summer.
