Habitus / Telephone


Habitus is a phone purely designed for interior spaces such as home or office. And for a more intimate electronic user experience.
The material choice and form are influenced by those we are most intimate with everyday- Furniture.
Inspired by traditional sofa craftsmanship, the buttons actually serve as dialing buttons, while the speaker and number pad are covered with soft leather. Information display glows through laser-cut plywood or aluminium surface, making the digital part more subtle.
This brings the user experience into another level, allowing people to get along with electronics in a more familiar and closer way.
