Breaking away from the usual metallic and dull plasticy feel of the average cellphone, designer Tokujin Yoshioka has created a special mobile phone design that lets the users harmonize with the silhouette and the surface of its design. Since the cellphone is one gadget that people come in contact with most often during the course of a normal day, it becomes essential that our senses are enlivened by the sensory stimulation we get during our usage of the gizmo. The Media Skin cellphone uses a variety of intense and soothing colors to make it more of an artwork that one can connect with emotionally rather than another piece of metal and plastic. The detailing of the art phone encourages many sensuous responses with every interaction while the silicon and urethane surfaces provide a reassuring touch to the users. A part of the Au Design Project 2007, the Media Skin Cellphone is currently on display at the Salone di Milano in Tortona, Itlay.
