Fans of Eames era furniture are probably sad that they don’t have a computer setup to go with all of their other mid-century modern furniture. Well, this mouse inspired by Eames furniture would be the perfect compliment to your decor.
It’s called Lounge Mouse, and it is a concept design for a mouse created by industrial designer Shane Chen. Its curved wooden base and black top resemble the iconic Eames lounge chair, and especially its ottoman.
The idea was to create a mouse with the ergonomics and style of Eames furniture and I would say that this was a success. It isn’t easy to blend electronics and furniture in a way that is pleasing to the eye.
If produced, the mouse would be made from bent plywood, and feature a leather surface just like the iconic Eames chair. For the moment, it is only a concept, but you never know. Maybe one day we will be able to use a mouse this stylish. I’m just hoping that it won’t be too expensive if it ever does become a reality.
It’s always nice when our electronics don’t actually look like electronics.
