Loewe’s unique aesthetic flare and penchant for providing everything but the kitchen sink on the features front means that any TV from the German company has a tendency to make the most fancy of its rivals look positively ordinary by comparison. So when Loewe itself decides to call one of its TVs ‘Individual’, you can’t help but expect something really special.
And as soon as you get the 32in LCD Individual S 32 out of its box, you sense that special is exactly what you’re going to get. For it is quite simply one of the most uniquely attractive TVs ever. And that’s even before you set about customising it…
The heart of its design appeal comes from the boldness of its core colour contrasts, as the metallic sheen of the top and bottom edges of the fascia is dramatically offset by the deep black of the left and right sides. The cunning little gap between the screen and the speaker section underneath is cool as you like too.
But amazingly this is just the start of the Individual’s aesthetic delights, for more or less uniquely in the ‘mainstream’ TV world the Individual set can change aspects of its appearance to suit your individual tastes and décor. For instance, the metallic parts of the fascia can be had in one of two hues: Chrome Silver or Anthracite.
You can also choose from a variety of equally stylish but all very different mounting options, including a ceiling-hanging pole, a floor-to-ceiling pole, a pole floor mount, a standard four-legged desktop mount, and our personal favourite, a sumptuous ‘monolith-style’ floor-stand on a rotating base.
And still there’s more, for remarkably the Individual also lets you add a variety of simple ‘clip in’ inlay panels to the TV’s sides. Options available include ‘real woods’ like ebony, rosewood, and light oak, plus a selection of glossy ‘synthetics’ including high gloss black, ruby, orange and apple green.
