Simplicity Feeds Immersion: The TV Design Philosophy of Elimination


Recommended Posts

Ultra-large TVs are taking the world by storm. The standard of ultra-large TVs, currently broadly understood as “larger than 75 inches,” continues to evolve with the growth in demand. Samsung Newsroom previously explored the main drivers of this trend, with a focus on the 2023 98-inch Neo QLED 8K. In this piece, we move on to discuss the intricate design process that helped showcase the behemoth of a screen in a sleek, elegant form factor as well as the details considered to push the immersive viewing (and listening) experience to the frontier.

Pursuing Simplicity with a Purpose 

98inch-TV-Designer-Interview-2_Main1.jpg

▲ TV designer Jangho Kim described the 98-inch ultra-large TV design as “a process of focusing solely on the immersive experience and eliminating everything else”

 

The essence of the TV experience is defined by both what you see and what you hear. Samsung Electronics has long focused on creating a “TV without a bezel” to provide a seamless experience that eliminates unnecessary distractions, Samsung adheres to the idea of “simple, yet meaningful.” A few years ago, this journey came to the point of minimizing the company logo in the front; this year, the 19.9 mm bezel-less design of the 98-inch Neo QLED pushed the envelope to represent the culmination of Samsung’s design philosophy.

 

“We focus on the core activities of the TV experience — which is watching and listening to content — and deliver value by leaving only the beauty of simplicity,” said Jangho Kim, who helped design the TV.

 

 

‘Design’ Paving the Way for Even-Larger TVs

As screens get larger, users have higher expectations for a new viewing experience. The current embodiment of Samsung’s TV design philosophy can be summarized as “One Plate Design,” to provide a perfectly immersive environment while eliminating potential concerns about the 98-inch size.

 

“We created the ‘One Plate Design’ by adopting a basic, simple design language so that TVs don’t seem intrusive to space. Being completely flat, you can hang the TV flush against the wall,” said Kim. “The TV is physically slim, but with a purpose: it all adds up to provide a truly immersive experience.”

The stand also heeds the minimalistic design philosophy, providing a sturdy foundation that does not obstruct the user’s view. Made up of two sheets of metal, the compact stand evokes a clean design while holding the ultra-wide screen steady — it doesn’t need to visually boast its 98-inch-screen-bearing prowess. “We made great efforts to find the optimal structure and ratio that can firmly balance a 98-inch TV without shaking or falling over,” said Kim. “The stand was developed with a simple but sleek and stylish design that can naturally blend in with the TV.”

 

The creation of this new, innovative product is the result of many talented minds from different departments coming together. Kim expressed how the expertise of various engineers, including those from the circuit, mechanics and materials departments, helped tremendously in realizing the slim, sleek and simple design statement.

 

 

Incredible Detail on a Larger Scale

As the design language for TVs — like many other electronic devices — has become simpler, some jokingly say that there’s not much left to design. But Kim smiles and says, “that’s why the details become increasingly important.”

 

For example, the 2023 98-inch Neo QLED’s Slim One Connect box was newly designed to blend in even more seamlessly to the users’ environment. The One Connect box helps users simplify their viewing field by allowing them to connect power and various input sources (e.g., cable box, gaming console, LAN cable) through a dedicated device. Compared to previous models, which required a separate space to place the device, the new Neo QLED 8K’s Slim One Connect box can be easily latched onto the back of the TV or on the stand. Regardless of where you place the TV — whether on a wall, a dedicated TV stand or another piece of furniture — you can enjoy your viewing experience without being distracted by unsightly cables, wires or external devices.

“We revamped the new Slim One Connect box to help users build a seamless TV environment in their homes,” Kim stated. “Ease of installment and minimal cable arrangements are also part of the TV experience. We took these aspects into consideration and really dug into the details in designing the new Slim One Connect box.”

Details can also be found in the sound system. Speaker holes were strategically placed on the side with woofer units in the back for both performance and aesthetic pleasure. “We are doing our best to maintain the beauty of the product at every angle — that includes the back,” explains Kim. The large units help add visual credibility to the set’s sound performance while making the TV visually pleasing from all angles.

 

These speaker positions, of course, have practical purposes, too. The various directions and spacing alignments of the units help better enable features such as Object Tracking Sound; the exposed woofers can bounce sound off the back walls and fill the room.

▲ Kim vows to continue the push to eliminate outdated ideas in pursuit of new values in his designs

 

As it continues to capture the attention of users around the world, the 2023 98-inch Samsung Neo QLED 8K is redefining “immersion” with its sleek design, crisp graphics and superior sound quality. Up front, all but the screen is basically eliminated. Details in the sides and back elegantly fill the rest of the immersive experience. A constant process of eliminating, innovating and refining, Samsung TV designs continue to thrive for an even more immersive viewing (and listening) experience.

      Shinique Smith is a New York-based artist widely recognized for her monumental fabric sculptures and abstract paintings infused with calligraphy and collages. In her art, she uses recycled objects or memories to showcase the power of personal possessions — believing that humans collect meaningful keepsakes in search of their own paradise. Her work has become renowned in the past two decades for conveying inspiring messages of personal expression, energy, history and identity. Now, Smith’s globally acclaimed artwork comes to life with The Frame’s cutting-edge technology.
       
      Samsung Newsroom sat down with Smith to discuss her artistic journey and the inspiration behind some of her work.

      From Early Creative Exposure to a Varied and Flourishing Career
      Q: Tell us a bit about yourself and your career as an artist. How did your early exposure to the art world influence your career?
       
      I was born, raised and educated in Baltimore, Maryland. My mother made certain that creativity was integral to my upbringing. What began as arts and crafts in my early childhood inspired me to attend the Baltimore School for the Arts, where I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies in fine art and arts education.
       
      In addition to my more than 12 years of arts education, my mother’s creative and intellectual endeavors — including fashion design, science, world religions and spiritual practices — were all influential and have become the conceptual core of my artistic practice.
       
      Art has shaped my worldview since it is a lifelong study, pursuit and career.
       
       
      Q: You work with many different media, ranging from sculpture to painting. What is your favorite to work with?
       
      I consider sculpture and painting to be opposite sides of the same coin, and my favorite is when they influence each other. I create with many materials — paint, fabric, collage, photography and performance. I enjoy finding the connections and harmonies that resonate between them.
       
       
      Q: Tell us a bit about your artistic process. How do you get from start to finish on a project?
       
      Drawing is the foundation of my artistic process. I draw sketches of sculptures that I’ve already made or plan to make in the future. This keeps my mind and hands coordinated and fresh. Paintings begin with words translated into gestures on paper or canvas. From there, I build layers, edit and find connections of color and meaning in the elements that I add. The process is almost entirely intuitive.
       
       
      Q: Do you recall a pivotal moment or experience in your career that still influences your work?
       
      “Twilight’s Compendium,” a site-specific installation at the Denver Art Museum, is one of my most signficant works. I used my body to make prints on the wall and combined them with sculpture and collage to create my first large-scale installation. It was a catalog of blues and a collection of marks that I learned throughout the process — which I continue to use now.
       
       
      An Intimate Museum in Samsung’s Art Store
      Q: Your work has been displayed at institutions ranging from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to the New Museum in New York. How does displaying your work on The Frame compare to displaying it inside museums or galleries?
       
      Both platforms grant access to a wide audience. In museums, the viewer must take in the work in a more public, fast-paced environment. The Frame, on the other hand, is like having a piece of the museum in an intimate space, giving the viewer more time to explore details of the work.
       
       
      Q: You have a collection of public works in cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and more. How do you feel public works like these compare to your work that is widely available to users of The Frame?
       
      My public works are available for people to see while in transit. They are monumentally scaled, from 60 to 150 feet. Some are indoors and at ground level, and others are outside and so high in the air that viewers must be at a distance to see the whole piece. All my works — wherever they are found — reveal intricate details upon closer observation, similar to viewing art on The Frame.
       
       
      Q: What pieces would you recommend users display on The Frame? Please give a brief explanation of each.
       
      ▲ “Angel” (2011)
       
      “Angel” is a composite of three images I shot of one of my favorite hanging sculptures. With pink and rainbows, this piece is great to display on The Frame since not everyone has space for work like this in their home.
       
      ▲ “Dusk” (2012)
       
      “Dusk” is a fabric wall sculpture and the only one that became a landscape made from clothing in my closet. I’m inspired by our quest for paradise and utopia through our keepsakes. For users, I hope it could be like viewing an imaginative rolling hill through a window.
       
      ▲ “Memories of my youth streak by on the 23” (2019)
       
      “Memories of my youth streak by on the 23” is new to The Frame, and it is my favorite part of a mural-like mixed media painting. Through the cut mirrors, the viewer catches glimpses of themselves in the work — like my experience riding the bus to school as a teenager or seeing my window reflection against the cityscape.
       
       
      Technology and Artistic Accessibility
      Q: Do you feel there are any advantages to displaying your work digitally, such as on The Frame?
       
      I love seeing my work in different scales and mediums. The Frame is a beautiful platform that gives the viewer the advantage of both variety and intimacy.
       
       
      Q: Throughout your career, how have you seen technology influence the art world? How do you see this changing in the future?
       
      Anything that causes a shift in society is reflected in the art world — technology has evolved so drastically that it has changed modern society with home computers, wireless cable TV, the internet and social media.
       
      Disposable cameras and camcorders gave people wider access to photography and videography. Now, everyone can film, document and share every increment of life through their smartphones.
       
      Looking to the future, everyone is talking about AI and using it to think and create for people. As we continue this exploration, I hope we will continue to rely on our own abilities and creativity.
       
       
      Q: Do you have any upcoming projects you’re able to tell us about?
       
      “Metamorph” will open in April at the Monique Meloche Gallery during EXPO Chicago. The exhibition will showcase new paintings, sculptures and works on paper inspired by butterflies, transformation and resilient beauty.
       
      This July, I will also present a new large-scale sculptural installation at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields.
       
      My latest exhibition, “Parade,” recently opened at The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. The synergy between my contemporary fabric works and the adorned, draped figures of European master paintings is striking. Available until January 2025, the gallery will feature various talks and performances starting this May through the fall.

      Steve McCurry from the international photography collective Magnum Photos, the photographer behind the iconic “Afghan Girl” portrait, has played a significant role in contemporary photography for more than four decades. Through his lens, McCurry has documented world conflicts, vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and modern society in an expressive, personal way. From the bustling streets of India to active warzones in Afghanistan, McCurry’s photographs have always been more than mere images — they are windows into the human experience.

      Magnum Photos is a cooperative of world-famous press photographers. Located in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo, the collective provides photographs to media, publishers, advertisers, television, galleries and museums worldwide.

      Finding Universality Through a Camera Lens
      Q: Do you have any significant moments or experiences that have influenced how you approach your work as a photographer?
       
      I have always had a desire to travel and push boundaries. After graduating from Pennsylvania State University and working at a newspaper for two years, I bought a one-way ticket to India with the money I had saved. I spent two years traveling throughout India and Nepal, photographing for a variety of magazines.
       
      In the spring of 1979, I stayed at a small hotel in Chitral, Pakistan — where I met some Afghan refugees from Nuristan who explained that many of the villages in their area had been destroyed. I told them I was a photographer, and they insisted that I come and capture the civil war. I had never photographed an area of conflict before and wasn’t sure how to react.
       
      After a few days, I walked with them over the mountains into Afghanistan and spent nearly three weeks photographing life there. I was astonished to see so many villages that had been virtually destroyed and abandoned. The roads were all blocked or under government control, so we had to walk everywhere. During this time, I met some people who I became close to.
       
      I was touched by the culture and beauty of the country. It was a different way of life with no modern conveniences, and I was drawn to the simplicity of that lifestyle. Everything was reduced to the basics — and that has made me return to Afghanistan time and time again.
       
       
      Q: You are well known for capturing raw emotions and intimate moments. How do you establish trust with your subjects, especially in culturally diverse settings?
       
      In my experience, most people are approachable. I find that once you explain what you are doing and how you can bring them into your process, people will open up and let you take their pictures.
       
      My photographs are how I observe the world and my surroundings. For me, the goal is to find some sort of universality among people across a huge variety of conditions. If I am successful, my artwork should be universally understood by anyone who has experienced the human condition, regardless of their circumstances.
       
       
      Q: Among your photographs, do you have a favorite?
       
      I took one of my favorite pictures when I was in an old part of Rajasthan, India. The whole city is painted in a wonderful blue color. I came across a corner and discovered children had left handprints on the wall during a festival. I thought, “What a great picture it would be if I could get people walking in or out of the frame.” After standing for about two hours, one little boy dashed through, and I caught him mid-stride. I was — and still am — happy with the picture.

      From Lens to Living Room
      Q: How have users reacted to your work on The Frame this year?
       
      The response has been excellent. Users are excited to have such a wide range of artwork available on The Frame to keep their home interiors fresh.
       
      The Frame allows users to discover and appreciate new artists and artwork. It is amusing to see my work alongside classic masterpieces by Van Gogh and da Vinci, as well as many other up-and-coming artists.
       
       
      Q: Does displaying your art on The Frame differ from displaying your art in museums and galleries?
       
      The Frame allows users to transform their television into a dynamic art display. They can exhibit images in their home that they may not be able to see in person at museums. Although nothing beats seeing artwork in person, The Frame is a great way to experience art from the comfort of your own home.
       
       
      Q: What pieces would you recommend users display on The Frame? Please give us a brief explanation of each.
       
      For centuries in Tibet, prayer flags embellished with sacred writings have been hung with the belief that goodwill and compassion will be spread to all living beings as the wind passes over them.

      I spent two weeks with flower vendors as they plied their wares along the shores of Dal Lake in Kashmir, India. The act of buying and gifting flowers is deeply embedded in the region’s traditions and integral to the aesthetic and economy. Their shikaris,1 filled with blooms, offered a deep sense of tranquility and provided a welcome contrast to the hustle and bustle of the surrounding town.

      Photography in the Digital Age
      Q: Could you describe if and how technology has changed how you work over the years?
       
      I worked exclusively with film for most of my career, but I have fully embraced digital technology these days. While it hasn’t changed the way I see my work or the way I photograph, technology has undoubtedly altered the process — allowing me to work in much lower light and more complex situations than I could in the past. Nonetheless, the same truths apply to any image regardless of the technique that went into crafting it. There’s impermanence about all things and nostalgia about things in the past — but I prefer to look to the future.
       
       
      Q: How does the digital format of The Frame compare to other platforms where you have shared your work, such as galleries, museums or even magazine covers?
       
      Each medium has its advantages. Digital art is virtually permanent, and exposure to heat and light doesn’t affect color — but the medium can be a matter of personal preference. Many museums are supplementing their exhibitions with multi-media presentations, merging different formats. It will be interesting to see what the future holds since technology is evolving every day.
       
      The Frame is a wonderful way to see pictures in a more intimate home setting. I remember getting off a plane and seeing one of my pictures on a huge screen at JFK Airport in New York. It was surreal to see my work enjoyed by thousands of people passing through the terminal. Similarly, The Frame allows people to view art more comfortably — adding a new dimension to the experience.
       
       
      Q: In this digital age where most people use their phones as cameras, how do you see the role of professional photographers evolving?
       
      The medium, platform or technology — whether it’s Instagram, digital or film — is not important. Successful photography has to be about telling stories and being creative, having your own interpretation and voice to say what is important to you and conveying those emotions through your photographs.
       
       
      Q: What is next for you in the coming year?
       
      I will soon be traveling to Antarctica and working on a new book of short stories.

      Samsung Electronics today announced that it is collaborating with New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art to bring some of the museum’s most treasured works of art to The Frame. The selection of The Met’s iconic artworks will be unveiled today on Samsung Art Store1 — which enables users of The Frame to transform any space by displaying more than 2,300 pieces of art, including works from the most distinguished artists, museums and industry tastemakers.
       
      Samsung Art Store users can choose from 38 pieces across a wide range of The Met’s storied curatorial departments, including the American Wing, Asian Art, Egyptian Art, European Paintings, Islamic Art and more. The offering features high-resolution digital reproductions of esteemed artworks across a variety of cultures and time periods housed at The Met.
       
      Samsung Art Store users can display beloved works of art in their homes, including Edgar Degas’ “The Rehearsal of the Ballet Onstage” (circa 1874); Vincent van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” (1887); Paul Cézanne’s “Still Life with Apples and Pot of Primroses” (circa 1890); and Georges Seurat’s “Circus Sideshow” (“Parade du Cirque”) (1887-1888). Owners of The Frame can also display ancient artifacts such as an Egyptian wedjat eye amulet2 (circa 1070-664 B.C.), and medieval treasures including “The Unicorn Rests in a Garden” (1495-1505), the famed French and South Netherlandish textile from the Unicorn Tapestries. Celebrated Japanese artworks such as Katsushika Hokusai’s “Under the Mannen Bridge at Fukagawa” (circa 1830-1832) as well as Utagawa Kuniyoshi’s “Concise Illustrated Biography of Monk Nichiren: Calming the Stormy Sea at Tsunoda in Exile to Sado Island” (1835-1836) are also available. Furthermore, the collection features historically significant American artworks like Emanuel Leutze’s “Washington Crossing the Delaware” (1851).
       
      “Since its founding in 1870, The Met has been dedicated to bringing art and culture to the daily lives of visitors and art enthusiasts around the world,” said Josh Romm, Head of Global Licensing and Partnerships at The Met. “Our collaboration with Samsung activates this mission in a new and modern way, allowing consumers to enjoy iconic works from The Met’s collection at home. As users explore the selection and choose works to display, this program will create a new dialogue about art, creativity and technology.”
       
      The Met’s objective to reveal new ideas and unexpected connections across time and cultures through its collections makes for a fitting collaboration with Samsung Art Store, one of the largest digital platforms of its kind. Showcasing art from museums and galleries around the world to users of The Frame across 42 countries, Samsung Art Store explores centuries of art, from old masters like Botticelli, Leonardo, Goya and Van Gogh to contemporary artists like Shinique Smith and many more through diverse monthly programming. 
       
      “The Samsung Art Store is honored to partner with The Metropolitan Museum of Art to bring world renowned artworks into millions of homes worldwide,” said Sang Kim, EVP and General Manager of the North America Service Business, Samsung Electronics. “At Samsung, we’re constantly working to redefine the entertainment experience through technological innovation, and we’re delighted to partner with such an iconic institution to enable users for the first time to enjoy The Met’s culturally significant works of art via a modern digital canvas from the comfort of their homes.”
       
      Samsung Art Store is available on The Frame by Samsung — a 4K Smart TV with a billion shades of color and a picture frame bezel that delivers vivid, lifelike TV when it’s on and beautiful art when it’s off. Its Matte Display drastically reduces light reflections for a canvas-like finish, which is perfect for showcasing digital collections from Samsung Art Store along with personal photography and artwork. Users can choose from a collection of picture frame-like TV bezels to customize their space and can upgrade the included slim-fit wall mount to the new auto-rotating wall mount3 to display content vertically or horizontally, so all stunning artworks can be viewed exactly as the artist intended.
       
       
      1 A single user subscription for Samsung Art Store costs $4.99/month or $49.90/year.
      2 A wedjat eye amulet is an ancient Egyptian amulet that represents the healed eye of Horus, an ancient Egyptian god. The eye is often depicted as a cross between a human and falcon eye.
      3 The auto-rotating wall mount is sold separately and is compatible with the 2022-2023 models of The Frame in 43”, 50”, 55”, and 65” class screen sizes.
