He said that Loewe was one of the first TV brands to elevate the design of the humble television into something that approached art.
Under the guidance of creative director Bodo Sperlein, it brought a sense of minimalist refinement to its flat screens; it wanted them to look as good off as on.
With the Bild 3.65, it’s clear the German brand hasn’t run out of ideas. Despite the fact that this is ostensibly a Loewe ‘budget’ offering, it has embellishments that will delight those looking for
class above cost-savings.
The Loewe Bild 3 line-up actually consists of both LED LCD as well as OLED models.
The new TV sits on a pedestal stand and features a distinct circular LED status indicator.
May claims that the Loewe Ultra HD OLED offering TV clearly exceeds the Premium certification specifications of the HDR Alliance.
He said in a review of the TV that “A forward facing speaker array (we hesitate to call it a soundbar) is finished in an acoustically neutral charcoal fabric”.
