For this VoIP phone, less is more

Beauty in simplicity

Probably owing to the sensory overload of the holidays, we at Crave feel compelled to repeat our mantra that less is more. Just after posting an item on an elegant special edition of LG's "Shine," we came across another example of a well-designed handset in the form of a VoIP phone.

What is most appealing about Lexon's "Lexphone" is the consistency with its surroundings. If you appreciate the clean lines of your MacBook or Sony Vaio, for example, the last thing you'd want to do is have some garish phone plugged into it, like a baseball cap atop an Armani suit.

The Lexphone isn't laden with features--in fact, its design is almost retro. But that's exactly the point: beauty in simplicity.
