An interesting design concept.
Sep 24, 2013
the ‘phone+book’ by taiwanese designers at kbme2 makes it possible to easily connect ideas from a digital source, while at the same time documenting them by hand. the phone sits within a cut out slot, giving designers, researchers and the like the opportunity to browse and source information while directly recording it on paper. spontaneous ideas can be immediately jotted down, or concentrated sketches copied over. a customized pencil also slots within the interior of the book, and can not only be used for writing and drawing but also turned upside down and used to scroll through the phone. the phone+book is a discreet piece, enabling creative ventures during those long meetings when it’s important to look busy.
