LG Display brought a reclining curved OLED throne to CES 2022

LG Display has a new, more elegant take on the concept: a rotating curved 55-inch OLED TV coupled to a reclining slice of chair that puts you right in the middle of those pixels.

The “Media Chair,” like most of LG Display’s concepts, is a concept, not a product – at least for the time being. LG Display says it’s working on bringing the chair to market with an undisclosed Korean massage chair company. The spokesperson Matthew Weigand said, “It’s being commercialized by them, and they’re going to sell it.”

While there aren’t any built-in robotic massagers just yet, the design does have a lot of vibration going on — speakers in the chair, as well as a speaker built into the OLED panel itself, owing to LG Display’s Cinematic Sound OLED (CSO) technology, which vibrates the screen to produce sounds.

According to Weigand, the TV has a 55-inch OLED display with a 1500R curve, which provides the “ideal focal distance away from a person for the best viewing experience.” It can also switch between portrait and landscape modes by pressing a button on the right armrest’s touchscreen control panel.

I don’t think there’s any doubt that such a thing would be completely out of my price range, though there’s always the possibility that some of the concept’s advantages might trickle down in the future. After all, LG’s consumer-grade OLED TVs have lately dropped below $1,000, and its eye-popping rollable display innovations have finally made their way into a $100,000 TV that made it to the United States this year, despite being incredibly pricey.
