In a groundbreaking collaboration unveiled at imm cologne 2023, renowned furniture manufacturer Kettnaker and optical technology giant Leica have provided a sneak peek into the future of multimedia entertainment. Their joint venture introduces an innovative piece of high-tech furniture – a lowboard – destined to redefine the integration of large TV sets into living spaces while maintaining a sleek and iconic design.
This cutting-edge multimedia furniture, currently in the developmental phase and slated for release in 2024, comprises three pivotal components: the Kettnaker SOMA lowboard, an integrated screen, and the revolutionary Cine 1 Cinema TV by Leica. With this pioneering prototype, Kettnaker and Leica aim to tackle the challenge posed by the ever-expanding size of TV sets and how to seamlessly incorporate them into modern living areas.
The Solution for Integrating Expansive Screens Stylishly
The Kettnaker and Leica collaborative lowboard presents an elegant solution to the burgeoning sizes of TV screens, a challenge increasingly faced when harmonizing technology with living space design. Expected to make its debut at imm cologne in January 2024, this innovation effortlessly transforms into a projection screen of up to 120 inches, providing optimal entertainment experiences. Moreover, the furniture’s design allows for the showcasing of art, photography, or wall decorations behind the screen, which can be fully displayed when the screen is not in use.
A Fusion of Masterful Brands
This powerful partnership draws upon the synergy derived from the convergence of two distinctive and successful companies. Kettnaker, celebrated for its impeccable craftsmanship and design finesse, collaborates with Leica, renowned for its precision and technological prowess, to craft the media board of the future.
The Versatile Classic: SOMA Base by Kettnaker
