Abstract

This paper analyzes the evolution of television set design in Japan from 1950 through the 1960s — from televisions first appearance on the market up to their settlement in Japanese daily life.
Television set design reflects the lifestyle of the people. In 1953 (Showa 28), when television broadcasting first started, Japanese television design exhibited a strong Western influence. Particularly, the Western table design was popular. Then, the design transformed into a television with four detachable legs that could be used both in Japanese and Western style rooms. Screen size gradually increased to meet customers’needs. 14-inch was the mainstream in early time, then 16-inch, and finally 19-inch television became popular in 1960s.
