Outline

A CD player with a simple interface that anyone can understand, like pulling the string on a ventilation fan to turn it on and off. The product has the strong sense of presence of a primitive tool, exhibiting its purity all over: at a glance the user can directly see that the disk is spinning and know that the product is operating.

Evaluation

Although the CD player has a completely new concept, it has become a new standard. It is both simple and beautiful. It convinces you that this is enough; no more design is needed.
