Designer Alexandros Stasinopoulos describes his award winning (2008) BRIEFCeramicASE as follows:
The challenge in this project, was to mix the concept of traditional ceramics, a primitive material with long history in many cultures, with the unique properties high tech ceramics posses like their extreme hardness, scratch- and abrasion-resistance, skin friendliness and their unique sensuous tactility. A briefcase is the medium to explore the potentials of this combination.
Ceramic might be the only material that will allow for such a beautiful clean aesthetic that can both last over time and withstand the daily rigors of the commute. When can I get a smartphone using this material?
