Sculpted Phone No Different From Hosta

More often than not, designers take inspiration from the natural environment to come up with something spectacular in technology. If it weren’t for the dragonflies we wouldn’t have helicopter now, would we? The project we see here is a simple home phone taking inspiration from the Hosta Plant. For those with a serious lack of green-thumb-knowledge let me tell you that it’s a foliage plant that is not fussy and comes in a broad range of solid colors.

Similar to the Hosta is the Non Literal Phone. Its basic premise is to add the beauty of a sculpture to a mundane device. A simple user interface married with a practical design, it looks ideal for the mantle place to me. Since technical info is scarce here, lets enjoy the design for a bit.

    weak project.. taking inspiration from nature is far to be new, Very poor UI. The base form factor does not fit with the main body, lack of details and when I see the picture showing the main body in your hand, it seems pretty imcomfortable and far too big for an average woman… you only attempt to make a phone looking like beautifull,…like a sculpture?…this is poor thinking to me! but the mokup looks to be well made, on the photos…
