The Venus Design Studio is located on London’s vibrant Southbank. Here the team designs and prototypes the wonderful round forms of the Venus (and friends). The team is lead by artist Scott Eaton and includes a talented group of designers and craftsmen who help bring each new Venus design to life.
The studio’s iconic first project, the Venus of Cupertino iPad docking station, is in full production and is the first design in a series of Venus art pieces for the home and office.
The Venus of Cupertino is a sculptural docking station inspired by the curvaceous forms and symbolism of the ancient Venus figurines – she is 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 gently guide any second generation or newer iPad onto a charger inconspicuously located in her midriff. A USB cable emerges from a number of points under the sculpture and fits any USB port or Apple power adapter for syncing or charging.
Hercules XIII is a sculptural tablet stand with classical styling. We brought Hercules out of retirement for his last and final labour. Who better to look after your tablet than the strongman of Mount Olympus. Yes he’s aged and a bit paunchy but he’s still powerful! With reliable hands he holds your tablet at the perfect height and angle to help you browse all your media.
