Exhibition graphic and printed matter for Samsung SERIF TV. Info

User Interface for Samsung SERIF TV. Info

In close collaboration with Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and Gaël Hugo we developped the graphic part of the user interface for SERIF TV, that we nicknamed the “curtain mode”: Like pulling a curtain over the screen, the user interface applies a filter over the content giving an abstract impression of what is going on behind. When the “curtain mode” is active, viewers can access simple services such as a clock, Bluetooth speakers, apps and their photo gallery.
