There's nothing inviting about a surveillance camera. Closed-circuit cameras invariably raise the question of security at what cost, and while the devices are pivotal to many movies, I'm more reminded of that tape scene in The Grudge that I always watch from behind my fingers. Italian designer Eleonora Trevisanutto gives the cold, boxy cameras a fun, almost toy-like makeover. In fact, at first glance I mistook these for disguised baby monitors.
Created for Italian company Parson, the camera lenses are hidden behind a semi-transparent screen and holds true to the designs' theme by attaching to the wall with a tree branch.
I have trouble imagining these mixing in well with more corporate architecture, but I love the idea. What do you think—could you see these gracing the dark corners of your workplace?
