A wrist with a Vue

Bad design is everywhere. Literally everywhere. From touch screen electric hobs yet to recognise a finger, to fridges with an inch of space between each shelf - now we've brought it up you'll find it all over the shop, much like pregnant women or turquoise cars.

One designer who's been fighting against bad design - or that's to say, design not fit for human consumption - for as long is we can remember, is Yves Behar. Best known for his $100 one laptop per child XO Laptop and the Mission One electric motorcycle, Behar's approach to design is mercifully person-friendly - as is so ably demonstrated by his latest creation for Japanese design house Issey Miyake.

The "Vue" is a streamlined supercar of a timepiece. Featuring a glass top cylinder supported by a sculpted stainless steel chassis - and available in typically Miyake-esque shades of fluorescent white and bright black - the watch's key selling point is that only one number ever appears on the watch face, with the other coming into focus as the hour approaches. Simple design at its best.
