The Feltphone concept design by Matthias Pugin is made from fabric to reduce the use of joints and hardware that take away from the aesthetic of a phone.

This mobile phone uses felt and leather with only two main electronic parts - the display and the main phone console - and is held together with Velcro.

Implications - As phone technology continues its inexorable march, the useful gadgets are getting smaller and more diverse in their shape and materials. Phones like this offer users a more flexible and less bulky alternative to traditional metal devices, and that is definitely something that businesses looking to entice an on-the-go consumer should take heed of.
