Art Lebedev’s Matryoshkus Experiment With Design


By Ryan Nill

The Art Lebedev Studio (of Optimus Keyboard fame) once again shows us its unique take on design with this set of Babushka dolls. Called Matryoshkus, these linden-wood Russian nesting dolls remind us of the relationship between all the little bits that make up our digital age: byte, kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte and terabyte figures all nestle into one another, with the indivisible bit in the middle. Sure, they don’t actually do anything at all. But they look pretty cool. And unlike their fabled keyboard, we actually believe these could become available as promised: September 1, 2007 for about 34$.

Couple more pictures and links after the jump.

  1. The change in volume of each doll is not proportional to the change in volume in the volume they represent. That is, they are not to scale. But then again the dolls would be unreasonably large if the next bigger one was 1024x larger than the previous one.
