This entry-level router is part of the novel Vodafone design language for fixed line products. Consumer electronics devices in the home area are either featured purposely, hidden or simply tolerated. This router does not belong into any of these categories as it discreetly blends into modern interiors as a silent, anonymous servant. Consequently, it does without relying on a traditional tech aesthetic, and is instead striking in its static appearance.
Statement by the Jury
This router is characterised by sculptural pureness. It lives up to its claim to do its service invisibly in the living room.
