Whether it be the case, or user interface, some products are made to look good. Show me your favorites.

I would like to keep this thread as a place for general discussion regarding product design, meaning anything you find appealing may be shared. Also, if you come across something interesting wherever you may be, take a picture and share it here. Please try to help each other in identifying any unknown product names.

This thread will be full of Apple products... so I'll just pretend the thread title is "favorite apple product design?".


My favorite Apple design, even though it's obviously kinda dated, is the earlier iMac.

The usual eco stuff, no BPA, reusable. They are very ergonomic too.

I won't be one of those people that overstates the use, they are in fact, just pretty water bottles.

Yeah, I remember looking at that in amazement back in the day, not understanding where the computer actually fit into the whole thing. :lol I love MBP's though (typing on one now);





And I loved using these water bottles;

On the other hand,

The company does preach sustainability, and denounces the use of single use water bottles. The product is one thing, but it is part of converting over to using other hydration solutions such as filtered water fountains.

I also loved the Nintendo Gamecube's design. I think releasing it in purple kind of killed it though because consumers never really took it seriously. If they had released it in just black and silver people might have given it a chance instead of passing it off as a kids toy.

And the Axis range, specifically the Axis 10.5. Best all round kayak money can buy.

Apparently old man Yamauchi loved purple/indigo, so Game Boy Color to GameCube all featured it. Makes me wonder how much worse the SNES and N64 would have fared if they had purple variants too.

This is the best looking phone ever. It's just so beautiful.

Galaxy Nexus


While it doesn't look amazing in picture form, the remarkable thing about it is how comfortable it is to hold. It makes you forget you're holding a 4.65 inch screen phone.

Macbook Air


Incredibly revolutionary in it's design. Just beautiful.

Wacom Cintiq 21HD


I'm not sure if it's the design, or just that seeing it makes me instinctively drool, but I want it so bad.

Wii



I've always like the Wii's minimalistic design. Looks great in contrast to the other two behemoth consoles.

Loved that thing, even if picking it up made the whole thing squeak from the weight and plastic pieces distributing. :p Slim model is still pretty beautiful, though.

I actually own an indigo Gamecube. I love purple. But seriously I'm in the minority here and most of my friends laughed at me for buying it. They should have released it in Black and Silver at launch, and then brought in a coloured range later in its lifecycle, similar to what they did with the N64.

$25 actually. Where have you been looking?

They are definitely good looking! A few celebrities rock them, however I would think something more self absorbed such as a Voss bottle would suit that category better...
