James Dyson wanted a clear bin on his vacuums so you could see how much dust the machine was picking up. Market research told him it was a bad idea. But he stuck to his guns and it’s now a hallmark piece of design. He believed if people could see how much dirt it was picking up it would demonstrate the effectiveness of the machine.
