phone+ / telecommunications system


A convenient home telecommunications system which combines voice and video telephony as well as the digital organisation of contacts in devices that can easily be used by the lesser tech-savvy people, while fitting adequately into the home’s environment.
A straightforward handset for voice and video telephony and a separate digital address book with handwritten entry integrate new technology into a familiar handling system. The devices are clearly structured and their design is semantically distinct to allow easy access to all features. They appeal to young people without excluding the old and intergrate the old without patronising them.
