22 Deceptive Camera-Like Designs

From Camera-Inspired Cabins to Deceptive Camera-Like Phone Cases

— June 17, 2013 — Eco
People are sporting camera-inspired designs around their necks, on tees and also on their phones. Some of these camera-resembling phone cases are even considered deceptive. But aside from fashionable accessories, the look of cameras have also been an inspiration to some random categories. For instance, the camera-shaped chocolate sculpture is an intricately carved chunk of cocoa. There are also camera-inspired offices, like the GO Portable Office—this structure is built to resemble the old field camera. The structure even has a window where the ‘lens’ of the camera would be.

It’s cool to see an overlap between technological design and other industries, like fashion or architecture. It isn’t a surprise, because cameras have always carried a positive connotation, being the classic icon for capturing sweet memories.
