LG has received 16 recognitions at iF Design Award 2019 ceremony held in Munich, Germany, including the coveted iF Gold Award for the LG OLED TV E9.
The OLED TV E9’s expansive screen secured the iF Gold Award for LG.
The use of transparent glass at the bottom of the display coupled with its recessed stand gave the illusion of the screen floating in the air, which according to LG is the “ultimate objective of every TV designer”.
It wasn’t the only LG OLED product to secure an award.
Among LG’s other winners included the LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R, the world’s only rollable TV, that made a splash at this year’s CES.
The recently revealed 8K OLED TV, OLED TV and Transparent OLED Signage were also winners.
Along with the Red Dot Design Award and IDEA (International Design Excellence Award), iF is one of the world’s top design awards.
Since 1953, designers and manufacturers have strived to obtain the celebrated iF award for design. A clear sign for consumers that the product is “best-in-class.”
“Great design is being able to anticipate the needs of our customers,” said Noh Chang-ho, vice president and head of corporate design at LG Electronics.
“At LG, we will continue to introduce designs that exceed consumers’ expectations.”
The E9 is part of LG’s 23019 OLED range that is slated to hit the Aussie market later this year.
LG has stated that OLED models will make up 20 per cent of the company’s high-end TV portfolio.
It is expecting demand for OLED TVs to grow to 3.6 million units this year, 7 million units in 2020 and 10 million in 2021.
