The 'Beovision 14' television knows its roots. Available in Europe from legendary designer Bang & Olufsen, the system offers all the perks of a modern TV but with the aesthetic sensibility of the television sets from the early days of TV in the 60s and 70s.

The Beovision 14's retro look comes from its nearly square layout and its speaker cover. While most TVs on the market opt for a completely minimalist look, with the screen being the entire TV, the Beovision 14 covers its mounted speakers in an "oak wood" finish. This style choice is reminiscent of the days when a TV was as much a piece of furniture as it was an entertainment device.
