As part of the London Design Festival, CONTEMPORIST visited the Tent London design event, where British designer Scott Eaton exhibited his Venus of Cupertino iPad docking stations.

Description from the designer

The Venus of Cupertino is a sculptural docking station inspired by the curvaceous forms and symbolism of 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 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.
