The Nest Thermostat is Google's entry-level thermostat that can help more customers save energy while delivering comfort. The design goal was to show that beautiful design does not need to be expensive. Affordable thermostats in the competitive landscape felt outdated and uninspired; Google saw an opportunity to design a truly beautiful thermostat. The construction is efficient; it’s essentially a bowl with an inset lid. The elevated lip not only works as a pleasing design detail but also physically protects the lens and helps with manufacturing tolerances.
