This delectable piece of art comes to you from Norihiko Inoue. It is affectionately known as the Vertu concept cellphone. Its sheer beauty is exemplified in the sleek black design that leaves open spaces between different sections of the keypad.

The design of the Vertu concept is very similar to that of an Egyptian mummy. The material looks to be spaciously (so it’s a poorly wrapped mummy) encircling the device as though it is holding the phone inside.

It’s a very interesting concept and a very innovative design. Stats for Mummy Mobiles Trending: Older & Mild
