Industrial designer Shane Chen has reimagined the everyday computer mouse with mid-century design. Fully inspired by the classic Lounge Chair and Ottoman by Charles and Ray Eames, Chen approaches the Lounge Mouse from the perspective of furniture design.

The circuitry and sensors are housed in a plastic casing, wrapped in luxurious black leather minus the scroll-wheel. Much like its source of inspiration, the whole black unit then sits stylishly on a molded plywood base, featuring a cutout on the bottom for a black plastic panel holding the on/off switch, battery compartment, and optical sensors. Inscribed on this bottom plate is also the line “A Tribute to Charles and Ray Eames,” a nod to the legendary designers and their work.

The Lounge Mouse design is currently purely a concept, so there are no working prototypes yet. To learn more about Chen’s concept, head over to the designer’s website or Instagram page.
