Diéy is an Astounding New Case Design Only In Win Could Conjure Up

The Diéy from In Win is an ultra-luxurious designer case that only In Win could have thought up. Teased at the 2020 CES and designed to be a star attraction at its Computex 2020 booth, the In Win Diéy is an open-air case that's designed to resemble an otherworldly plant straight out of science-fiction. A 7'6" tall armature suspends a large globular object with mechanized, illuminated "petals" made of plexiglass, resembling an inflorescence or a swarm of butterflies getting ready to fly off. These petals/wings "bloom" to reveal an open-air, dual-compartment full-tower chassis with a vertical partition.

The case supports E-ATX motherboards with up to 8 expansion slots, room for graphics cards up to 36 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 17 cm in height. You get four 3.5-inch drive mounts that can each hold 2.5-inch drives. You can hook up three 360 mm x 120 mm radiators. The base of the main set-piece has an LED projector that beams down the In Win logo (re-programmable) onto a screen at the foot of the armature. Depending on the orientation of the petals, the set-piece with the chassis measures 800 mm x 960 mm x 960 mm - 800 mm x 1300 mm x 1300 mm (HxWxD), but when you include its gigantic stand, you end up with dimensions of 2.3 m x 1 m x 1.5 m (yes, those are meters). In Win will accept orders for a small production run some time in April, the company didn't reveal pricing.

As luxurious as getting a set of golden teeth instead of a necklace.

If someone showed me just the first picture with visible stand, I'd probably guess that it's a cheap, ugly desk lamp.

Euhm yeah. Practical.

Do we get a free window cleaning guy with it?

Also... you just know this should be dubbed the "In Window"

Also, its a shame In Win can't spell 'AND'


It just oozes premium

I actually like this lamp and it's nothing like the ugly case. :P

That said, the ugly case definitely looks like a type of ceiling lamps that got popular lately:


But with that logic, next year InWin will probably give us a case shaped like a roll of toiler paper.

No, visually its a cool thing to look at.

Practically, its a total POS & waste of time. Pretty much like their other experimental designs. Still, it is innovation.

Is this a late April fool's joke?

Someone at INWIN messed up the order for their in house gym and ordered too many speed bag stands, and they needed a way to to get rid of them.

tempered glass on pc cases was because of InWin, thinking outside the box. I probably can not justify spending a fortune in their design cases, but I`m glad they try new things.

and I was thinking about using a old whisky barrel for a build.

You know... it's a bit of a stretch to call a product "innovative" just because it's so weird and niche that large, global players wouldn't bother.
Also, I don't see any added value. None. Just esthetics.

In Win gave us a lot of visualisations and say this is "Born and Mastered Through Imagination". I'm really curious how they imagine me using it. :)
How do I connect it to screens and so on? Is it supposed to hang over my desk?

I'm with @Turmania on this one. I think it's amazing. That being said, it is/will be definitely a niche product and pricey. Not that I'm expecting it to be cheap. Art meets function, but just how much function remains to be seen.

I agree, but innovation in and of itself is pretty much a buzz word to begin with. Its not about any sort of real invention. Its just iterating on what you've got. And it is clear what brought them inspiration.

At the same time. Having a PC suspended in mid air is not necessarily a bad idea, because that is really a prereq for this case. And if it can double as a lamp? Profit! Damn, I might just order two... :P

As for unorthodox designs: I quite like the idea of a PC put in a desk (Lian Li) or in monitor stand (e.g. latest Dell Micro).
And while putting a case under the monitor has been a standard approach in offices since forever, I really liked the esthetics of Cryorig Taku (I may not use the word "innovative" but it certainly was refreshing).

But all these form factors follow an idea that people have been doing (or trying to do) earlier. We mounted USFF/NUCs behind the monitor, some people tried DIY desk-cases.

I've absolutely never came across anyone who wanted to hang his big ATX case from a ceiling.

I'm still waiting for an actual desk layout that would utilize this case. Either from In Win or a reviewer.
But since the renders don't show any I/O, I guess In Win doesn't have a functional design yet, let alone a preproduction sample...

As for esthetics: this is obviously not for me. I can't really imagine a PC setup that I'd want less.
It even beats the wall-mounted PCs with exposed parts, i.e.

But for people who like plexi-RGB things, this may be a interesting "step up". Then again, until someone makes this work, it's just a weird lamp...

Really have to take my hats off to In Win, they are one of the very few willing to experiment in extremely outlandish designs.
