japanese designer tokujin yoshioka has proposed a mobile phone with a transparent form and body. ‘x-ray’, a collaborative project with japanese product manufacturer KDDI iida, is the result of a conceptualizing process that explored the notion of a design without a shape. the product is a mobile phone which provides an aesthetic and texture that is legible and true to its function, an idea which yoshioka refers to as, ‘designing from the inside’.

  • I bet your high school phones does not look as sharp as TY one. If he had made it from 1 singe Swarovski slab then it wouldn’t be good either for you kids.

    yawn
  • lol yes! I remember having a clear cover for my Nokia back in high school haha.

    it’s nothing new but I do like the lines of the phone. really sharp and modern in styling.

    I like the scrolling banner on the back of the phone too which is cool but yeah, when it comes to’design’, not too sure if this fits any particular bill.

    Textual Thoughts
  • This is another disappointing design from Tokujin Yoshioka. Nothing that hasn’t been done before and the execution is nothing to be excited about either.

  • The Nokia 3410 had aftermarket transparent covers 10 years ago. I had a 2 clear ones, a blue one, a purple one and a red one…

    Lawrence
  • Is Tokujin disappearing up his own phone?
