tokujin yoshioka designed transparent smartphone ‘Fx0’ for au by KDDI




the transparent smartphone ‘Fx0’ designed by tokujin yoshioka for the japanese mobile phone brand, au by KDDI, communicates the openness of which firefox OS is most distinctive for. by capturing the beauty of the internal mechanics, tokujin incorporates a see-through and futuristic form that expresses from its inside.

after the 2007 ‘media skin’ and the 2010 ‘x-ray‘ collaborations, the ‘Fx0’ not only marks the third unison between the phone company and yoshioka, but also symbolizes a new stage for firefox OS smartphones. as the first time this software is made available on these devices, the firefox logo is placed on the home button to identify its originality. to complement this, the cell also features high-performance specs such as 4G LTE and quad-core CPU produced by qualcomm inc.
