    I am a huge fan of 80's-90's retro industrial design... The use of many materials in a single product while not making it look busy seems to not be used anymore. There's an obsession with limiting the number of materials you use in a product nowadays. Good in some cases, but really boring in others.

    -Sony MDR-V6 headphones
    -Traditional Thinkpad
    -Lenovo Yoga
    -Sony Vaio Z series
    -11" MacBook Air
    -Fourth generation iPod
    -Nokia Lumia 920
    -Traditional Ray-Bans

    Those are just a few cases of industrial design that I like.

    The Vizios I thought looked amazing when I first saw them on Engadget. Then I saw the Vizio products at Best Buy and was less than amazed by their build quality.
