Following on from the Gorenje Swarovski Dark Crystal Refrigerator, we have more diamond delights – this time from Loewe, which is putting into a production its 32-inch Swarovski crystal ‘concept’ LCD TV, now known as the Individual Edition 1.
Unsurprisingly, it’s a limited edition of 2000. There are two colour options – black body colour with dark crystal side inlay panels, and silver body colour with light crystal side inlay panels with 1000 of each being manufactured for distribution worldwide. Only 50 of these will be coming over to the UK.
The TV HD-ready and combined with the Loewe’s Digital+ platform, offers what the company claims is "superior viewing". Loewe’s picture processing technology Image+ is also featured for improved image processing. Other features include an integrated Freeview tuner, and the option to include a hard disk recorder.
None of this comes cheap. Expect to pay around £5,000 for the Loewe Individual Edition 1 when it becomes available, probably around the start of June.
