I would probably use a displacement map for that.

Ok that may be the easy way but i need to make it real goemetry(i have logo in lineart not a problem-but how would i get that logo to connect to the top if i jus modeled the hyper cube to my shape?

there is no easy answer.
but in this case, i model the logo with an extrude nurb and main body seperatly, then join them with the boole object, then by hand make them subD compatible.

To be honest, that object is one of those things which would best be created in a NURBS modeler. You're going to go way out of your way to try and make that with Cinema's sub-d modeler (or any sub-d, for that matter).

Super easy, Use a displacer deformer on the hypernurb, ramp up sub division up to needed, a nice blur on the shader used will help. I do it all the time.
What do I win?

Yes, that's the easier way
Modeling geometry is a bit more involved: image below
- extrude the type without a front cap and build out from there
- boole the type out of the bar and extrude edges from there (Nitro's magic merge works well too)
- from there it's making loop cuts, line cuts and merging points, et.
