swarovski mouse

swarovski mouse by jeremy doherty from singapore

designer's own words:

By manipulating the design of an item used everyday into a sensual, feminine form we have created a personal gesture for the urban lifestyle of the working woman.

The design of the mouse is a play on the form of the Swarovski logo. With this wireless computer mouse, we see the neck of the Swan supporting the crystal which is used as the toggle tool to scroll up and down, here we have created a tactile and innovative use for the crystal with which the user interacts. The body of the Swan becomes the body of the mouse which supports the users hand and leads the users fingers up to the two buttons located alongside the crystal. Finally, a subtle Swarovski logo has been included in the design at the base of the mouse.
