Contu Mobile Case Cover / mobile case

Contu Mobile Case Cover

Contu reimagines a phone case design that buffs the support in delicate mobile devices by providing more support at its weaker areas. With a 0.1mm thickness step up with every added layer, the phone's strength will be made stronger with an even pressure distribution.

We borrowed lessons from nature and applied them to mobile phones that we use on a day-to-day basis. We mapped the stress points of every phone and applied incremental contours. Graduated terrace steps add to structural rigidity of the phone case that will increase strength at stress points in mobile phones. Thus integrating Design, science and nature in a simple phone casing.
