the story of the pleiades
In Greek mythology, the Pleiades were seven sisters: Maia, Electra, Alcyone, Taygete, Asterope, Celaeno and Merope. Their parents were Atlas, a Titan who held up the sky, and the oceanid Pleione, the protectress of sailing.
After a chance meeting with the hunter Orion, the Pleiades and their mother became the object of his pursuit. Enamored with the young women he pursued them over the face of the Earth. In pity, Zeus changed them into a flock of doves, which he set in the heavens. The Pleiades flew into the heavens, beyond the reach of their pursuer and now rest in the constellation of Taurus.
Only six stars are distinctly visible to the naked eye. There are many explanations and stories for the 'lost' star. Some believe after the destruction of Troy, the grief stricken Electra abandoned her sisters and was transformed into a comet – ever after to be a sign of impending doom.
Others speculate variability in the celestial form, possessing the ability to transform into a physical being coming back to Earth to live among us – made of stardust from the pleiades.
the lost pleiad design studio
Similar to the 'lost' star, design is often not understood or seen by the naked eye. Most users do not notice spatial relationships, the richness of a color, or the quality of a texture. They do not often comprehend why they interact or feel a certain way in a space -- they just do. When these elements thoughtfully come together to integrate vision & brand and reflect the users needs a spark is created that evokes a feeling. It establishes a memory and a lasting impression with the intended user. This intentional thinking creates an experience -- it's what transforms an ordinary space into a PLACE.
