I doubt this is really the television of the future, but it is fun to look at.

"Black picture. A crystal asymmetrical black picture put on a glass base...16943 is a technological sculpture in levitation. It fits two screen sizes: 4/3 for TV and 16/9 for cinema..."

This seems to have the potential to make you aware at every moment of the inadequacy of your television set and the arbitrariness of its shape. It denaturalizes.

The best thing about this set: the "missing" lower right-hand corner. It's a set that comes with its own theoretical lack, and you can't really improve on that.
