Now that almost every Jack, Jill and Fanny has their swanky flat-screen TV mounted on the wall, you need to go a little bit further if you want to impress the neighbours when you invite them round for sherry and some mild wife-swapping. Might I suggest the Zgiga TV 2? Currently only in concept form, it’s an amalgam of an LCD display and BluRay/HD-DVD player in a beautiful wooden case.
Being not fully flush with the wall, Zgiga is intended to serve as a somewhat decorative shelf for a phone, a vase or perhaps a bowl of car keys. The black cube section is the DVD player, fronted with a touch-sensitive control panel. Crafted by Ori Takemura, Zgiga TV 2 recently won a red dot online award in the Design Concept category.
