Cool Concept Design of a foldable Handset.
Designer Chengyuan Wei came up with cool and simplistic cardboard phone. When squezzed on the edges the cardboard folds into the shape of a phone. Microphone, speaker and connectors could be integrated into the cardboard. Wei writes that he got the inspiration for the simple design from taking apart a handset of a phone. I assume a course in Origami helps to come up with such a design that shines through its simplicity.

I could imagine that this design could also be used for future paper mobile phones (see BBC). The design of the Origami handset makes paper phone ergonomic to use.
Back in 2006 we featured a Tetra Pak inspired phone concept.
