Oh, to be a concept designer. Free from the demands of saleability, you can concentrate on more esoteric things like prettiness, general flair and that “wow” factor that comes from not having to squeeze a whole load of electronics inside the gorgeous shell you’ve penned. Despite this, Syntes Studio have come up with a cellphone concept that’s eminently possible. Themed around a traditional domino, it takes as its theme not so much end-design but the prized unboxing process.
Packaged in a traditional slide-top domino box, lined and even with instructions glued under the lid, the phone itself has a moulded rear panel where the single-dot is a camera lens. Syntes claim they’re aiming to “generate disruption” and while that might be a bit of an over-reach there’s no denying that they’ve created a pleasing phone.
