Tria Set Top Box
Digital video broadcasting device
Beside its technology, Tria, as also implied by its name, aims to provide innovation, design and functionality by referring to the three legged star. The slit which begins on the rear part of the Tria connects to the front corners. Visually, this represents that the product receives the data in the rear and transmits to the front. In addition to giving a message to the user, this slit provides gaps for ventilation and creates an iconic lens in the center. The glossy black product which has a folding line on the middle axis puts the emphasis on the triangle in the middle. This geometry has also been used in front acrylic lens. This product - with the help of the slit and the folding line – aims to visually emphasize that many applications (Games - Internet - Music) will pour out of it. The inner plastic -where the ventilation holes are placed- made of matte plastic whereas the outer case of the product is made of glossy black plastic.
