My Hercules XIII tablet stand is the inaugural cover star over at DesignFizz – a new online magazine covering international design.

We are excited to have our Hercules XIII tablet stand and the lovely Venus of Cupertino iPad docking station as raffle prizes at the National Portrait Gallery Gala. As two of only 40 raffle prizes, they are in exclusive company along with a Philip Treacy hat, a Gucci handbag, and other amazing prizes.
All proceed support the National Portrait Gallery and its acquisition fund for acquiring exceptional works of historic significance.
Our Hercules XIII tablet stand was named one of the top 10 pieces at London Design Festival 2013 by the Times. This is quite an honour considering that there are thousands of designers exhibiting at the festival in locations all over London. It seems Hercules’ baroque design sense is an appreciated counterbalance to the simple minimalism emerging in things like Apple’s iOS7.

We just finished an exciting weekend at London Design Festival where I debuted my newest design – Hercules XIII, a universal tablet stand for work and play. Hercules, along with the lovely Venus of Cupertino, garnered many smiles and giggles of admiration over the four days. It was great fun seeing the public’s reaction, thanks to everyone who stopped by! more at Eaton.london
My Venus Lamps (and one Venus docking station) are headed to 94 Baker Street today in preparation for the launch of the Apple Apartments – 5 new luxury apartments in the Beatle’s Apple Corps building. Images from the apartments after the launch.
Anyone who has been to EATON.london recently might have noticed that my Venus iPad Docking Station needs companionship. The good news is there are a couple new docking stations in the works, so she will have company soon.
But now there is talk around the studio of making a sweet little (big?) desktop lamp to add to the Venus range. My sketchbooks have been bubbling with ridiculous and absurd variations on the theme. Here is one of the more presentable…

The Venus of Cupertino, Scott’s iPad docking station is finished. Here she is with all the creative mess generated taking her from the early prototype to the final functional docking station: a short stack of sketchbooks, a pile of 3d-printed grip and charger tests, wads of spent sandpaper, a few files, and of course a couple iPads.
London Design Festival
The Venus of Cupertino will be at London Design Festival in September. She will be in attendance as the iPad docking station you see here but there may be a couple other surprises as well. If you are near London on September 20-23, stop by Tent London and see her in person.
My iPad docking station, the Venus of Cupertino, is hot off the press. If you missed the genesis of this project see the early sketches in the drawings section.
The Venus of Cupertino is a sculptural docking station inspired by the rounded forms of the ancient Venus figurines – a fertility goddess for the technology age.
With gentle hands, she will cradle your 2nd, 3rd, or newer iPad while syncing or charging. All cables are neatly routed through the base of the figure and are fully changeable to support future iPads. Each Venus is hand cast in museum-quality resin and available in a selection of finishes.
PRICE: $199 USD
