Televisions as a Focal Point

Televisions as a Focal Point

We're not sure if this high culture/fashion approach to technology is a healthy undertaking, but if you're obsessed about things organized neatly in bags and treating our laptops as fashion statements, maybe it's not too much of a stretch to start creating curated spaces just for our beloved tech in the home?

Above, Federico Delrosso double loft conversion from an old factory in Milan, Italy makes TV displaying an art, dedicating entire walls to draw one's eyes to a single focal point. The small TV almost feels empowering over the wide open space.

Some may argue that this contemporary approach of creating wall canvases for physical objects a bit of a waste of space, but we think it's a pretty cool approach, not that worshiping a TV is healthy by any means. That said, this space is in serious need of tenants. Some personalization. Something! We love the minimalistic look and all, but this feels like a Batcave. In Antarctica.
