Mod Gridded Mobiles
The Kanavos Smartphone Uses a Windows Format for an Apple Operating System

It seems that many touchscreen handsets have been conforming to a very similar design. The Kanavos smartphone deviates from the iPhone-esque model with a compartmentalized interface.

Defined black lines cover the cellphone in the vertical and horizontal directions to divide the display and the entirety of the device into rectangles. On the front, these boxes act as app icons, presenting the user with a selection of frequently used utilities and programs.

When browsing photos on the OS Kanavos smartphone, the thumbnails remain arranged in the same gridded format. Speech bubbles that show text messages also stick to these rigid parameters. Alexandros Stasinopoulos’s concept is compelling one, both aesthetically and functionally that’s optimized for organization and investigates the relationship between software and hardware.
