Dezeen x Samsung QLED TV Stand Design Competition



Turkish designer Fulden Dehneli has been named the winner of Dezeen and Samsung’s QLED TV stand design competition, with her idea for a stand that doubles as an adaptable piece of furniture.

Dehneli’s RøR design beat projects by four other finalists – including one that placed the television in the middle of a plant pot and a sculptural piece made with tinted glass.

The competition asked entrants to rethink traditional television stands with a design for Samsung’s QLED TV, considering the device as not just a technology item but a lifestyle product. They were in the running for a prize pot of €30,000 (£27,675).

Dehneli was named the winner following a live judging that saw all five of the finalists present their designs in front of a jury at consumer electronics fair IFA in Berlin. Mock-ups were also made of the finalists’ concepts, and displayed within Samsung’s booth at the fair.

The judges chose RøR on the basis of its strong and original concept, which went well beyond conventional product design to explore new ways technology can be combined with consumers’ lifestyles.
