Fred de GARILHE tried to create a 2 in1 phone: sms position when closed, easy to use as a pager, “pebble” form to imitate surf and beach spirit… special materials as neoprene texture to create a fusion with Quiksilver apparel collections. When the phone’s opened, the screen is double larger, that permit to navigate on a mobile web system, watch TV or movies.
A special detail: this phone is integrated an ARVA, that is a system that localize lost snow surfers, or swimmers… a good crossover with the world of extreme sports. de Garilhe also integrated a real spirit of fashion collection, with different colors and textures for different moods: surf, snow, and street.
Well since this is just concept, we don’t know for sure if quicksilver interested in producing this, but we do hope so, we would love to have this phone for real in our hand.
