based on the idea of a mobile phone as art, KDII brand iida has collaborated with japanese artist yayoi kusama to produce three limited edition mobile phone models: ‘dots obsession, full happiness with dots’, ‘my doggie ring-ring’ and ‘hand bag for space travel’.

‘dots obsession, full happiness with dots’ is a recreation of kusama’s ‘infinity mirror room-phalli’s field (or floor show)’. it is a mysterious box covered with white dots on a red background with a maze scope extending from a side wall of the box. peering inside, the world of dots – kusama’s signature motif – expands infinitely. the mirror inside the box multiplies the dots, overwhelming you as you peer inside, creating the sensation that you might not know where you are anymore. as you open the box, you find a mobile phone buried amongst the dots. only 100 are available.

drawing on the 2004 artwork ‘hi, konnichiwa (hello!), my doggie ring-ring is an artwork of a dog wrapped in happy colors and vivid dots. as you open the lid on the back of the dog, you will find a mobile phone decorated with the same pattern that ring-ring wears.
