Channel Server (2002)

Hard disk recorder with a user interface for easily finding a desired recording, much like changing channels. Aiming for a style that redefines how we watch TV, product and interface designers collaborated, drawing inspiration from each other throughout their comprehensive design of the unit. To avoid having the unit seem cold and mechanical, they carefully chose the material, color, and impression of illumination for a unit with a neutral character. Their design signature is also evident in the interplay of the LED indicator and the graphical user interface (GUI), which represents a pulse of vitality.
