Wow! I am totally floored by this concept phone, not only does is mimic Madame Coco Chanel's mysterious aura but also stands for her superb design sense. Looks like Chanel is trying to get into something other than fashion with this new concept phone
Called the Chanel Choco Phone, this concept has been designed by Fred de GARILHE.
It works by integrating an optical fiber system that display image between two glass parts. There are 12 micro lighter fibers, that throw image components to the glass, that offer a quite good luminosity, and keep the mobile phone concept as light as possible. All lights only appear when you open the phone, by pushing removable part on the side of it.
On the first glance this doesn't look like a phone at all!! When the phone is closed, it looks like a chocolate piece, but made from white, black, or yellow gold surface. It features a lower sliding part that has the display and the function buttons while the upper-piece has the numeric pad. When not in use, all the user interface elements disappear to reveal a pure shiny surface.
Very cool phone!! It looks like a keychain. A cubic keychain.
I've been waiting for Chanel to come out with a mobile phone. Bound to happen with releases of D&G, Prada,Giorgio Armani,etc. But this is the best phone i have ever seen!! It just had to be Chanel to come out with a concept for what would be the hottest phone ever!! Even Apple didn't even come up with this! I wonder how much it would cost! ;)
It's a work of art.
Oh, I so WANT this phone!!
