LCD monitors for the sake of art

Aesthetics for designers and photographers

Formac

With monitors breaking the 30-inch mark , a 20.1-inch LCD seems downright puny--which may be one reason Europe's Formac is taking a distinctly aesthetic route to market its new displays. It makes good sense regardless of size because the "Gallery 2010 Xtreme-5" is aimed at professional designers and photographers, with a "unique controller board" for color rendering, according to PCLaunches.

As companies continue to expand their thinking on monitors, we've seen designs that look appropriate for settings ranging from architect's offices to museums . As long as they don't take the form of Hello Kitty , we'll be happy.
