Excellent Set Top Box

I have been known to complain about the design of modern utility objects. For every Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, there are thousands of terrifically ugly clock radios and plastic desktop fans that are painful to look at. Amongst these frequently ugly but necessary objects - the unavoidable set-top box.

Yves Behar created this magnificent device that looks fantastic and functions correctly. Based on vertical or horizontal position, the compact display orients itself to be readable.
