Claiming he was tired of ‘electronic-looking electronics’, Shane Chen designed what one might consider an awakening for the tech industry. Taking inspiration from an iconic chapter in furniture design, Chen envisioned the Lounge Mouse, a hat-tip to Ray and Charles Eames’ Lounge Chair. The Lounge Mouse follows the form and visual direction of the ottoman footrest that comes along with the chair. The base of the mouse is made from bent plywood, while the upper half is an incredibly soft leather clad with a scroll-wheel in its upper center. “The design addresses the ergonomics and style of a computer mouse from the perspective of designing furniture”, says Chen, who designed the Lounge Mouse as an entry for Render Weekly’s online rendering challenge.
