Small electronic appliance enclosureBlind

in 3D Modeling Design held by nwold
Contest Closed
This small electronic appliance will sit on the table or bookcase in homes. It functions similar to a home automation hub (e.g. Smart Things, Wink, etc,)
It needs to look good, look modern, simple but elegant.
Attached is the model file of a prototype that accommodates the minimum features of the circuit boards and connectors. We're looking for this prototype to be the starting point and a far more elegant product design is the goal (winner).

IMPORTANT NOTE: The bottom circuit board component/connector placement is fixed (cannot be moved/altered). The top circuit board model file currently shows 4 LEDs. There will be an additional 4 LEDs added to the circuit board for a total of 8 (multi-color) LEDs. These LEDs will display colored, motion patterns to indicate system functions, in a way similar to the Google Home. The LEDs need to be visible from the top of the case either by shining through a thin semi translucent white plastic, or possibly small hole, slots, louvers can be used. The pattern of the LEDs will be in a circular patter, though the diameter of the circle is left to the designer. The top board components except for the LEDs is fixes, the location of the 8 LEDs if flexible, the size of the top board is flexible.

The design does NOT have to have draft built into the model for the contest, but the designer must be able to add draft (for additional fee) after the prototype has been approved.
Exterior style, LED visibility (top), functionality is primary.
Ease/cost of tooling is important. (We will be SLA the prototypes, then tool injection molding in production)
Ease of assembly is third.
Robustness is forth.
Don't Wants:
It shouldn't look like a bar of soap, nor a simple plastic box.

Revolutionary Meditation Bench
A standard meditation bench made of wood gets a makeover. We are looking to create a fully-adjustable, lightweight, travel version of a wooden meditation bench for manufacture via injection molding (plastic). Here is a reference for what it usually looks like (not what we are making): The bench consists of 2 legs, of the same size, 7.5 inches tall. Atop is a main sitting piece, which is at right angles to the legs and is 18 inches long and 7 inches deep. All parts are ½ inch thick, or thinner. The bench needs to be able to support the weight of an adult. The main sitting piece (piece “A” in the sketch) needs to be rotational such that it can be tilted forward in order to create an angled seating platform. This adjustment is to conform to the seating angle of the meditator to create comfortable sitting position. The piece must lock out once in place at the desired setting, in order to provide stability while sitting on it (aka it does not move). The legs must also be retractable, such that they fold in towards the main sitting piece in some manner, in order to make the bench small and practical for travelling or storage. When folded, teethe assembly should ideally be no more than 1 inch thick.
