Solution

Every line, every surface is deeply connected with the underlying functionality and furthermore it brings some visual clarity and ease of use to all the numerous features of this modern product. The overall shape is both clean and distinctive: a ribbon-like chamfered surface adds a touch of softness, whilst the other more rigid surfaces echo the sense of robustness and longevity that its high quality mechanisms do offer.
