AOC and Studio F.A. Porsche Announce Stunning New Monitor Series

5 Jul 2017 AOC and Studio F.A. Porsche Announce Stunning New Monitor Series [...]...

Fremont, Calif. –  Renowned display specialist AOC and legendary design house Studio F. A. Porsche have collaborated to bring two incredible-looking monitors to the market.  The new 24” AOC PDS241 and 27” AOC PDS271 come equipped with an almost frameless IPS panel, an asymmetrical metal stand and ultra-slim, premium design. Innovative, sleek and elegant design The design philosophy behind these monitors was inspired by the principals of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche: His approach was “If you analyze the function of an object, its form often becomes obvious.” In its purest sense, a monitor is just a screen. But the screen is meant to provide a beautiful visual experience, and that experience is often marred by unsightly cables hanging down from the monitor’s ports. The new AOC PDS series revolutionizes the traditional approach to monitor design. “The expressive shape of the monitor stand emphasizes the simple idea of integrating the cables into the stand,” said Henning Rieseler, Head of Studio F. A. Porsche Berlin. “The form not only follows the function, but celebrates it through its asymmetrical shape in an elegant and sophisticated way.”  With the first modular input/output design on a monitor, the PDS241 and PDS271 combine power and HDMI outputs…
