The artistic director of Thomson Multimedia from 1993 to 1996, Philippe Starck contributed, with this portable television, a new aesthetic and functionality. Jim Nature stands out for its materials which are not used in electronics. The casing is made of shells of sawdust mixed with glue; all of this is pressed agglomerated and heat moulded. Practical, it is equipped with a handle and a compartment to hold its remote control; lastly, the antennae are detachable.
