Don't want to let your kid play with your iPhone? What about this minimalistic, radiation-free version? Brighton-based designer Kyle Bean crafted this wooden iPhone, which features 12 wooden block apps. While kids won't get the same touchscreen functionality with a wooden gadget, the puzzle piece-like apps can be slid in and out and repositioned on the toy, adding a fun powered-down play element to the phone.
Thomas Forsyth, a London-based designer and artist, helped construct the iPhone’s wooden frame at his workshop. Bean specializes in designing models and sets across a variety of platforms including window displays, installations, editorial and advertising. This project was for the cover and an in-book illustration for Computer Arts magazine, which unfortunately means it’s not for sale.
