Plus Minus Zero - Naoto Fukasawa

Hi,

I’m curious to know what people think about the Plus Minus Zero collection.

The collection has been extensively praised by the design media, but I’ve heard that the Japanese public are now less receptive to their products. Has anyone heard any info about them as I can’t read Japanese websites?

Thanks.

N.B. an 8-inch LCD TV from them costs USD 1,400. That’s colossal when you consider the cost of the components.
