    1. Current version of my STOLMEN project is proof of concept how to separate TV-set from the wall and use space for wiring and for usually very hot electronic equipment.

    2. This combination of STOLMEN and TV is baby safe.No cables lower , than 1m from the floor.

    3.Result is strong and stable.

    Wall mount from Monoprice would’ve been about 30 euro.

    Cable management please?

    it looks functional but it looks very aesthetically displeasing.

    a wall mount can’t possibly be more expensive. stolmen isn’t cheap.

    Wall mount are available as from 100€ here in Germany.
    This thing costs nearly the same (30€ per pole and 10€ for 4 hook thingies) and looks like something that ugly couldn’t describe well enough.

    The old one looked great. Just put the TV on one of the wooden boards or if they aren’t thick enough, buy a thicker one. Far cheaper, far better looking.
