Although the web is inundated with reinterpretations of cellphone devices, designer Patricia Urquiola introduces a more artistic take rather than the modern, sleek versions we are used to seeing.

Inspired by Spanish culture, Patricia Urquiola's cellphone design mimics the look of castanets, an instrument used to make noise by clicking them together in the palm of one's hand while dancing. This very pretty design, available in three colors, also features additions such as a keypad, a tummy strap and earphones. Stats for Castanet Cellphones Trending: Older & Chilly
