Slice of living

Making home entertainment more comfortable

You’ll be moved by what’s playing on your Sony TV, but the room will stay as relaxing as ever. The secret: new product design that takes cues from interior design.

Design pallette

Design that feels at home in any home 

Imagine a design palette that consists of the shapes, patterns, and other elements found in a ‘slice’ of a living room scene. Most slices would include flat, slate-like objects – such as pictures leaning against walls, books on a shelf, or dishes on a table – so we used these as our basic building blocks during product design.

By utilising this palette and slate-like shapes to inform the look and feel of our new TVs, we were able to ensure that their slim design maintains the harmony of your living room while still making a statement.

A new standard, quietly composed

Structurally simple, 2016 BRAVIA TVs resonate with living room design because they’re composed of slate shapes, both in stands that seem sliced from walls or the floor and screens that recall pictures or windows. Not just slim, they’re also free of distracting elements. Across the new lineup cables can be routed through the stand, concealing it from view on all sides. Here, we’ve set a new standard in elegant TV design that keep your living room comfortable.

Design and engineering in sync

How would people like Slice of Living design? To find out, we asked people in several countries. Feedback on prototypes – especially for stands, which we had created in many shapes, at various angles, and in several colours and materials – brought preferences into clearer focus. Once we were convinced that this was the right direction to take in design, we worked out the details with our engineers. Even for sets as structurally challenging as these, our close collaboration made it possible without compromise.
