Sand Wave / Phone Stand

Sand Wave
Sand Wave

Sand Wave is a phone stand made of sand.

When there are incoming calls, the wave on the sand surface shows up due to the vibrating alert. Users could not only enjoy the process of seeing the sand wave showing up with incoming calls, but also get notification of missed calls.

When the phone is in stand-by mode, the sand on the phone stand is showing up the smooth surface. It could create a quiet and gentle spirit in the environment.
