VERTU Void phone / Mobile phone

VERTU Void phone
VERTU Void phone

Thanks to technology, mobile phones are getting smaller and thinner year by year, however, we need a certain size to hold and look at a screen properly. My concept is that, In the future, electric components will be incorporated to the phone's outer shell. The proportion of mobile phones will remain as it is now, therefore, there will be an empty space inside. The design of the phone is defined by lines in space, which are crossing through areas where we generally hold mobile phones, as a result, concourse of those lines turns into places to put fingers. Also, the lines are working as a frame and structure while remaining empty space inside.
