stefano giovannoni first debuted ‘tivù’ in 1990 as part of a family of objects called ‘stones’ — characterized by a square and monolithic language. now, more than two decades later, the television stand and storage unit has been put into production by internoitaliano to communicate the design’s iconic form; which references the graphic sequence that rai – italian radio and television corporation – aired at the beginning and closing of its broadcasts from the 50s to 80s.

‘tivù’ features a cable box and DVD player located behind a central door, with V-shaped wings offering a space in which to hold newspapers and magazines; while wheels allow one to easily move the unit around. this updated version has a shallower depth than its predecessor in response to the fact that television screens today are much thinner compared to those of the 90s.
