The Iconico by Hector Serrano Hangs Up Like a Telephone

The Iconico by Hector Serrano, a designer based in London, England, may look like a pair of earbuds, but it functions more like an antique telephone. A mobile-friendly speaker that encourages people to get all touchy-feely, it turns on and off depending on what position it is resting in. For instance, to turn it off, a person simply needs to flip the speaker down on the table. To turn it back on, it needs to rest on its side.

According to the designer, it "is inspired by natural gestures that belong to every user, doesn’t matter his nationality age or background." The Iconico by Hector Serrano is therefore very intuitive and interactive. Serrano elaborates, "Design should learn how the humans behave and not the other way around."
