The Bodo Sperlein x Loewe Bild 9 is so achingly beautiful you’d be forgiven for looking everywhere but the screen. The German-built model is the most eye-catching television in the world – thanks to a London-based designer.
That’s because the centrepiece (or kernstück in German) is the made-to-order Bodo Sperlein steel sculptural stand said to draw inspiration from the ‘roaring twenties’, Bauhaus and Art Deco.
Sperlein is a suspiciously German-sounding name and you’d be right to deduct he hails from the motherland. However, the designer is actually Loewe’s London-based creative director, with a consultancy based in the capital’s iconic OXO Tower, so we’re claiming him for our own.
The striking solid frame is available in amber gold or graphite grey that Loewe says forms a harmonious contrast with the ultra slim OLED screen. That’s right, geometric shapes and radical aesthetics aside, the Bild 9 is an Ultra HD TV measuring a mere 7mm in depth.
Available in 55-inch or 65-inch sizes, the Bild 9 cleverly houses a hidden 120-watt soundbar that seductively reveals itself when switched on. All cables are concealed inside the steel frame with fabric covering the port cluster connections on the rear.
As well as the latest OLED display technology, the Bild 9 future proofs you with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Dolby Vision to further enhance brightness, colour and contrast. A 1TB hard drive and Freeview+ tuner are also included.
Loewe – and indeed Sperlein – aren’t finished there. Arriving in August are matching Klang 9 wireless speakers with a built-in subwoofer to pair with the TV.
