vector. tv. unit.



The Vector TV Unit from Axi sounds like a videogame system and looks like a podium, but it's actually something you put your TV on. Once the TV is on top, your DVD, VCR and other entertainment gizmos go in the shelf parts. (I think the bit that looks like a microphone is actually used to prop up a flat panel TV.)

attention.
What I like about the Vector is that while it looks fun and interesting all on its own, its shape leads your eyes to the TV. So when you want to watch the TV, you're not distracted by the stand, unlike some of today's monster entertainment units. And when the TV is off, the Vector is there, making a bold design statement in your living room (or wherever).

color.
Although I love the purple version (I'm in a purple phase right now), you can also get the Vector in any of Axi's colorful veneers, which include yellow, blue, red, orange and lime green, among others.

uncommon. style.
The downside to the Vector is that TV design is not up to its standards. With choices ranging from silver and black to black and silver, your TV has some catching up to do if it wants to be part of the the purple and lime green crowd.

Lime green! Good gravy. Maybe if you made a '60s style mod pad.

Wow that thing is ugly. I'd say people usually have more trouble looking away from the TV than looking at it...

My immediate first impression was:

1980's Memphis inspired design - actually looks like most of their gear has a form derived from the Memphis style. Not that it's a bad thing - let's just call it an homage...

Great blog BTW
