His design philosophy is meaningless, he's out of his depth. What he has is a shopping philosophy, and a smart phone. Utter wankcase, people are mugs.

That video is hilarious.

All nice stuff, but think these kids genuinely believe they've invented buying mid century modern furniture and minimalist clothes.
Such an amazing design philosophy! So grateful he shares his personal style.

video is pretty lol,but I think its just a representation of a generation now that are just really happy with this kind of nothing twee content, its that kinfolk/cereal etc kind of consumer wants to project having taste to everyone.

saying that if they made a decent sizer version of the serif I would possibly look at it, as very hard to get good looking tv

Serif tv is designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and is nice irl.
Think there's a few sizes and an optional stand

It's kinda nuts how companies are now choosing to advertise…not even that many followers really? Better than another dim witted shite tv programme celeb though.

Interesting that PQ isn't the most important consideration to try hards when buying a TV..

in the end the company is advertising with hypebeast whose reach is vast not the individual, they would then 'curate' the people in the films out of their 'network' namely people who will do it for free / he probably got given that tv, if you notice a lot of these people also have that circular b&o stereo as they did a similar push, when you look at it like that its a really low investment for a pretty big reach (as product really doesn't cost anything) where as if it was a celeb you could be paying them 50-100k upwards for that kind of endorsement.

It's just nonsense isn't it.

Being into skateboarding naturally leads to liking minimal interior design (apart from the floral Supreme deck on your wall) because… you skate outdoors?

I don't think he really could explain minimalist beyond saying it, its not a minimal look its just void of personality, but that sums up a big sector of that audience.

Really don't get the Serif TV. No one would take the chunky frame seriously if it was just a Samsung product and not designed by the Bouroullec Bros. The stand is ridiculous - no thought given to where a Blu ray player goes or to cable management. And the design is going to date really badly. A TV can't be an investment piece like furniture as technology moves too quickly these days.

Unfortunately the Beovision is 4times the price of the biggest samsung…
Personally i'm not sure if I want a tv at the moment, but if I change my mind the serif would be my only option.
I disagree with the design criticism too, it fits perfect to almost all contemporary shelving…
Not looking good in the video with the stands though.

I dont agree with design comments either,I think the stand is a bit style over substance, but I think its a more functional design than the b&o, good tv design hard to find as a lot just end up looking like fucking space ships, with lots of shiny bits, I like my sony bravia which slots in to a base which is the sound bar, annoying it seems this design is discontinued in the next generation so finding hard to find a 4k tv I like, and the serif is a bit small at 40 inch if they did a 50 I would likely get one
