One of a series of three mobile phone designs by Yayoi Kusama (I only meant to recommend the one, but they are all so beautiful!). In addition to an adorable cell phone nestled (almost hidden) among the dots inside the box, this box is also an interactive art piece. When you peer through the kaleidoscope-like tube extending into the box, the dots seem to expand forever into space. A preferable universe to exist in. This is artist Yayoi Kusama's favourite piece, and it is available in a set of 100, which are sold exclusively in Japan.

Certainly, it is a dog. And yes, it is art. But what is not immediately obvious is the fact that this is, in fact, a cell phone. The cutest, most original cell phone I have seen in ears is housed under a lid on Ring-Ring's back. Unfortunately, this phone is only available in Japan in a limited edition of 100, as part of an artist collaboration from iida and artist Yayoi Kusama. Now, fetch!
