We have seen many examples of historical stone carvings that defy the physical attributes of their materials; for example, famous statues in art history like Michelangelo's David. The same logic is applied to the cement pillow.

The Pillow Cement iPhone Rest by Snarkitecture is a clever way of combining art and technology. This cement pillow rest makes cement look like another medium that can be moulded into it's physical opposite, and yet serve an aesthetic function.

This piece presents a witty irony; how something could look so light and comfortable, but made from a material that is heavy and roughly textured. What is most amusing about this cement pillow is how well crafted it is. It perfectly fits an iPhone or similar size cell phone and has a cutout underneath to fit a cable.
