Odd design

12 words

What’s the rationale that drives a designer to do something like this?

Printer with a hole for ventilation that is at an obviously different angle than the little plastic 'fence' covering it.

What’s that, BTW, a printer?

I’m not quite sure I made my point here: We have a strangely angled opening for ventilation ‘covered’ by a non-angled protective bit. This just looks broken to me.

And, yes, it’s a printer (HP something, nice and small).

Sven, my point is that if was broken by design then the designer must have thought to “add something” to it.
