MacVenus Docks into London Design Festival

British designer Scott Eaton exhibited his Venus of Cupertino iPad docking stations at the Tent London Design Event.  We had to marvel at the design sensibility and philosphy which drove the design of the Venus of Cupertino.  It is a sculptural docking station inspired by the curvaceous forms and symbolism of ancient Venus figurines – Eaton’s take is to ‘reconnect’ the old with the new - a fertility goddess for the technology age.  Each Venus is hand-cast in museum-quality resin and is a fully functional iPad docking station. Her hands guide any second or third generation iPad onto a charger inconspicuously located in her midriff. A USB cable emerges from a number of points under the sculpture and fits any standard USB port or Apple power adapter for syncing or charging. The charging cable is fully changeable in order to future-proof the  docking station against updates to Apple’s iPad connectors. For us a deliciously quirky take on Kitsch and Cool…..
