Who Had the Bright Idea of Designing a Box Set Like This?

The John Eliot Gardiner Collection, from DG, has 30 discs across Gardiner’s career, covering a broad range of music: Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, operas and passions, and some symphonies.

I bought this box set last year when it came out, but hadn’t gotten around to ripping it, so I pulled it off my shelf, and had forgotten that some dimwit thought that a box set like this is a Good Idea.

As you can see, when you hold the box normally, the bottom falls out. I caught it, but it’s quite stupid. I’m pretty sure that DG has other box sets like this. I hope the designer’s been fired.

    Many Apple products come in boxes like this, but the fit is tight enough that the lower box won’t fall under its own weight.
