Ikea's Radical New TV Is Really An Idea From The '60s
Ikea’s first television comes with the furniture built in. We talk to the designer behind the company’s bold foray into consumer electronics.
Last week, Ikea shared a plan much bigger than a new veneer. It was the Uppleva, their first foray into consumer electronics (if you don’t count all those lamps and discount batteries). The Uppleva is a Scandinavian home-theater cabinet with a twist: A 40-inch TV, sound system and Blu-ray player are built in with discreet wiring, all controlled with a single bundled remote.
Uppleva will work similarly to other Ikea products.
