Nothing drab in Olive's designer audio servers

Designer Karim Rashid creates a new edition.

The 'Fusion' Olive

If peripherals as mundane as cable boxes and portable hard drives can draw the attention of artists and fashion designers, then certainly a home audio system can too. And if the photo accompanying this item is any indication, Olive Media isn't shy to make a splash of its own.

The company has updated its highly regarded line of digital servers with a model that features the artwork of designer Karim Rashid. The "Opus Nº5 Karim Edition" comes in four variations, which are explained in classic art-speak by the creator himself: "I designed four unique digital graphics patterns symbolic of our corybantic digital age. Omni-directional like sound, the patterns emphasize the 'voluminous' beats that radiate from music. The repeated elements are symbolic of binary notation enveloping a perfect container of sound."

We had to look up "corybantic" in the dictionary and got this helpful definition: "being in the spirit or manner of a Corybant." Thanks a lot, Messrs. Merriam and Webster.
