Phone Bloks

Every year millions of mobile phones are discarded. In most cases this is because a single part needs repairing or upgrading, while everything else is still working. Dave Hakkens’ mobile consists of separate components, ‘Phone Bloks’, which can be clicked together to create a personalised phone. Each component has its own function: WiFi, battery, display, etc. Are you into taking photos? Go for the best camera. Working in the ‘cloud’? Choose less storage. Or go back to basic and choose a top-notch battery. And when one of the components breaks down or needs an upgrade, it can simply be replaced.
