There is almost always a return to simpler times, and with the Huawei Folded Leaf cell phone design, that may be the case for smartphones. I'm sure that people will really appreciate the bare-boned aesthetic and usability of this device, which bears the minimalist look that has hit the design industry like a tidal wave.

Designed by Swedish studio Claesson Koivisto Rune, the Huawei Folded Leaf cell phone is modeled after--you got it--a folded leaf. Of course, it doesn't look as much like a folded leaf as it does a a cordless phone or even a clam shell.

The Huawei Folded Leaf cell phone is set to make its debut during the Milan furniture fair 2011. Stats for Bare-Boned Cell Phones Trending: Older & Mild
