In 2003, Tim and Gretchen Gilbertson had a vision: to create a revolutionary television that would bridge the gap between design and technology. From that first TV Mirror prototype created in the Gilbertson garage, Séura has become an award-winning manufacturer offering a full, and constantly evolving, portfolio of mirror and TV solutions with applications in every indoor and outdoor space.
Throughout the Séura journey, technology has drastically evolved and become an even larger and more integrated part of everyday life. With that, Séura’s vision has evolved as well. Instead of bridging the gap between design and technology Séura is focused on eliminating it. Working to find the perfect harmony of design and technology in every product and project so that every individual gets the most from every space they are in.
Séura draws inspiration for both its name and its design philosophy from the work of Georges Seurat, the influential late-19th century French pointillist painter. Pointillism allows the viewer’s eye to create a complete image from related but individually distinct parts. Just as clusters of paint work together on Seurat’s canvases to create a masterpiece, pixels of a TV form a cohesive design. Similarly, elements of artwork, furniture and technology come together to create powerful design. At Séura, we believe the best environments are designed when art and science work together.
