SPHERE SPHERE is designed for Samsung QLED TV’xxs Ambient Mode Design competition project by Dezeen and Samsung. Project is awarded with 3rd prize in Berlin IFA fair. Below you can find explanation of project.World has emerged to a new type of community where individualism has become the key force, fueling diversity and free will as its core values. An individual creates a self-digital world while interacting others via social media, applications and softwares on private and customized devices. In our new community, definition of televisions has shifted, representing our homes - no longer a device hanged on our walls. Internet of things surrounds us every day with devices we use in our routines. Our identities are based on things we have done, we are doing, we are to do, shaping our decisions. Decisions which were solely made by us, have begun to make in collaboration with dedicated applications and innovations. An immediate personalized home interface allows users to take their home to a new interaction level. Television is only a surface to watch when the time comes, however SPHERE acts with time and user.Perception defines the border of imagination. New methods for showcasing informations and graphics forging wider perspectives throughout our decisions, schedules, suggestions and any type of data user would like to acquire in daily life. Design idea is to combine personal data with procedurally generated graphics to demonstrate ambient mode.SPHERE, acts as a personal assistant to an individual’s life. You can feel as it is embodied version of your immediate space, home. Your choices shape your life, environment and home as well as your personal SPHERE. Everything gets connected with one surface. Surface which is hanged on your wall without any border but stands as an object. Your choices, your preferences, your life, your SPHERE,Round Your World. Diğer İrem Deniz Akçam
