Bended Surface / Mobile device concept

Discipline: Professional Concept

Bended Surface is an innovative mobile device with an “edge screen” that is extended to the side of the phone, hence providing unique and diverse experiences. The 70° curved edge screen enables quick access to frequently used applications such as Health without having to unlock the screen. Information appearing on the edge screen and on the main display is mutually linked, maximizing the synergy between the two screens. For example, the content dragged from the edge screen appears on the main display in detail. Having eliminated the physical buttons on the gadget, users can use the phone with both hands, regardless of direction.

This concept for mobile devices such as smart phones, for example, uncovers a completely new way of operation. On the one hand, the display uses the maximum space possible on the surface by being taken right to the edge, and on the other hand, the edge itself also has a display. This results in a tidy interface with many new possibilities of control. In addition, the transition from the main display to the edge is designed in a smooth and aesthetically pleasing way.
