The combination of the vision and strategy of Luke Furniture and Vincent Van Duysen resulted in a unique TV set on a foot, with two separately rotatable modules, that can partly serve as storage space when the TV is not being used. The furniture is provided with a user-friendly and functional cable management system and a universal hanging system for plasma and LCD screens. Thanks to the clear-cut, simple form, it can be integrated into any interior design.
Company: Luke Furniture
Lefevere Group, founded in 1900, is an internationally oriented company combining the most advanced techniques in the processing of wood, plastics and other materials. Lefevere Group anticipated the crash of the CRT TV market and resolutely chose the path of innovation. The spin-off Luke Furniture thus designs, produces and commercialises innovative home entertainment furniture, in which flat screens are seamlessly integrated into any interior. In this way the company remains an important pioneer in the combination of design and functionality into one single piece of furniture.
