CANAL+ causes serious TV viewers to move to France…and design enthusiasts to buy a TV. French and European television enthusiasts are getting Le Cube. Le Cube does for television what cellular handsets did for home phones – it completely changes the equation. Canal+, Frances premier pay channel, asked fuseproject to challenge the status quo by designing its HD/DVR cable box, remote and the TV graphical interface. Le Cube brings a radical simplicity to its design and the details are tuned down to the smallest texture and vent holes. Its horizontal and vertical orientations allow the unit to neatly fit in any environment. The design sensibility of the physical cable box has been carefully applied on the digital user interface, creating a harmonious interaction between the hardware and the on-screen UI. Who knew television was best in French?
