The television - 'a telecommunication medium used for transmitting moving images and in two or three dimensions and sound' (wikipedia)
It's a funny old thing the television. So much excitement around it's invention and when it was introduced into our lives. Most 70 year olds love to share their memory of rushing to find someone who had a TV in their street to sit in front of a tiny screen to watch the Queen's coronation in 1952.
The television has been on quite a journey over the 60 plus years its been in our homes. I remember we didn't actually 'own' a TV for years but rented it from the local TV place AND we had to get up to change channels! As a design it's evolved from a square box screen displaying fuzzy black and white images to a now far more refined wafter thin piece of technology. It's educated us, it's made us laugh, made us cry, we've argued over it and we've had gatherings around it and for most of us, we still choose to have at least one in homes today.
Personally I'm not a fan of TVs in the bedroom so how to design these into these spaces has never been much of a concern for me BUT I do still like to have a TV in the living room.
