Circuit Board Chic: Where Tech Meets Art

A circuit board may simply be a small, insulated board where interconnected circuits and components are mounted, but it has come to represent something much larger. In fact, circuit boards have been a source of inspiration and a material staple for designers and artists of all sorts since the widespread use of the personal computer.

I like circuit board pieces because they seem to embody the complicated and ongoing workings of a computer, but at the same time seem natural and almost organic because of their subtle, earth colors. While tech inspired art and design isn't for everyone, I've seen a real emergence of circuit board designs that are sophisticated, thoughtful — and dare I say — even geek chic.

The selection seems endless, ranging from larger pieces like the Circuit Board Lamps, which are made from reutilized computer circuit board and are stunning with the light shining through them, simple Circuit Board Luggage Tags to these cute Circuit Board Coasters, which are $19.99 from ThinkGeek.

I bought my bf a picture frame that was made out of an old motherboard. He liked it, and it made the picture of us I put in it seem less cheesy :)

I love these coasters! The colors are gorgeous, the 2nd one (coppery color) looks like a mini work of art or something. Very geek chic. And not bad for getting six of them.
