Sky introduces Designer HD boxes with retro-styled looks

Skydesigner_2

Put off Sky because of the ugly box under your TV and even uglier dish? You’re probably the target market for the Sky HD Designer Collection.

Basically, it has collared some bright young things from the world or art and design to give the high-definition boxes a makeover. The designers vying to catch your eye are Basso & Brooke (who did the 70s-styled box above), Giles Deacon, Preen, Gareth Pugh (who does a Bridget Riley-esque op art box) and Jonathan Saunders.

All are available now in limited quantities, with prices between £199 and £299, plus your subscription. Shame that dish still looks so ugly.
