modern grills, where art thou?

As work continues on our back yard, I yearn for a modern grill. Standard grills are frightening to a Modernist: just a giant ole pile of stainless steel yuck. Where are the Modern grills? What we'te looking for is something that can be outside, runs on gas, and looks good.
As it turns out, there are a few out there:
I've posted about this one before. More griddle than grill (which might be healthier), this baby is gorgeous but high dollar, clocking in at $3,000 depending on your options.
The Fuego has a small footprint but a good price: about $300 (with free shipping!). They used to have a white one, but no longer. :-(
rockwell grill by caliber
More post-Modern than Modern, this baby clocks in at almost 10K.
the mueller emform
the hasty-bake legacy
Kinda minimal and available at $1,130, but charcoal only.
the lazy man model A2
Available from Amazon for about $450 and recommended by The Wirecutter (we loves The Wirecutter, yes we do), this would be a good grill, and it is so close: if only the top was more cubist. Plus, when the arms are down, it looks like a little robot:
Hot damn, that's cute!
This is a cool grill, but charcoal (and around $800).
It has a promising name, but rather than a grill, it's a griddle with two burners. And a $3,800 price tag.
oh my, maybe this is it! Freakin' gorgeous! But also freakin' expensive: $5,500 for the three topper:
Darth Vader himself roasted Wookie-steaks on it (or so I'm told).
For us poor folks, there's a set-on-topper for $2,640:
They ship to the US, so we can assume they work with US canisters?
These guys have it figured out.
We could go custom, but that costs big bucks, and can be dangerous if the designer/fabricator doesn't know what they are doing.
These folks have the right idea:
Hide the whole mess behind a wall and be done with it. hmmmm.....
