The EO2 is the second generation WiFi connected LCD display from Electric Objects. Its primary function is to display original digital art, user uploaded art, or selected digitized art from partner museums. For the first time, the EO2 makes digital art more accessible, brings it into the home and allows you to change the art on your walls based on your mood.
Our design challenge was developing a brand new product category, the premium digital art display. A balance needed to be found to attract a new digital generation as well as deliver a product that appealed to a traditional preference for framed artwork found in a museum.
The EO2 functions as a link between the artist and their audience – work is presented exactly the way the artist intended. The product can easily be used in a minimal gallery setting – devoid of any sentimental reference to home. Utilizing standard framing technologies and high-quality aluminum extrusions with a soft black satin anodize finish, the design transitions fluidly from a technology product to more the language of a framed work of art. Accessory wood frames and a few additional mounting solutions better integrate the EO2 into one’s personal space.
