Brief

Design a democratic design product (appeal to a large market), but with an easy recognizable design language. Aimed at a global market. Optimized cost price, due to market segment.

Solution

Small form factor. We did a design with many elegant small details added – the back part of the handset has a pattern of holes camouflaging the speakerphone. Light guide detailing and textures used to increase overall perceived value of the product. On the charger stand aluminium is added to give weight and elegance. The style is even carried through to the base station.
