Serif is a collection of screens, televisions, we designed for Samsung during the past two years.
Serif is a television that moves away from a preoccupation with ultra-flat screens. Instead, it is an object that can be turned around and manipulated. It can stand anywhere, even on the floor with its own legs. What we were looking for was a solid presence that would sit naturally in various environments, just like an object or a piece of furniture.
In profile, it forms a clear capital “I” shape, its slim body broadening to form a surface like a little shelf at the top.
We also designed the interface inside Serif.
Serif comes in 3 sizes, Serif, Serif Medium, and Serif Mini.
Serif and Serif Medium come with optional feet (that are included in the box).
3 colors are proposed, White, Dark blue and Red.

While we follow the boys’ steps towards a promising future, we reconstruct the tumultuous and tragical life of their father. When his sons get confronted with some of the same challenges and problems as their father, history seams to repeat itself.
