Designer Chengyuan Wei decided to take apart a standard telephone and check out the pieces inside. Inspired by the miniaturization tendency, he created the Origami Phone, that’s basically a flat surface, that when picked up and used turns into a tridimensional object, reminding us of an Origami.

This minimalistic handset is very much a flat piece of cardboard, that becomes a phone when pressed on both sides and picked up. It still has electrical wiring, a metal stitch, hardboard, chip, diaphragm microphone, but they’re all discretely integrated. If real, this would become the thinnest phone in the world in an instant…
