We partnered with Google Creative Lab to create a series of Digital Easels; which formed part of a public installation – showcasing a unique drawing experiment. The series we developed was approachable and informal - inviting to be drawn upon by adults and kids alike.

Whimsical in concept, yet rigorous in manufacture, the Canvas embraces the demands of public events - structurally robust, yet compact and movable. The design is sympathetic to tech integration, discretely accommodating power, cabling and cooling elements within its ventilated base unit.

The design references the silhouette of the classic painters easel, with hardwood detailing and a height adjustable canvas mount to accommodate drawing from a sitting or standing position. These time honoured features are juxtaposed with tubular steel, as a nod to the technical in a device that ultimately celebrates the future potential of drawing.
