Black or White / Cellphone

Black or White
Black or White

Black or White is a two-sided phone inspired by Zen. The Black Side is a regular smart phone, black represents the turbulence and complexity of the information explosion. The White Side is an ordinary feature phone, and the wooden panel represents the calm and pureness of returning to the original. Black or White hopes to trigger user thinking in the process of choosing which side of the user to use: whether it is a purely functional or complicated information world; is it that people choose machines or machines to invade life?
