Cell Tower in Ebonized Oak by Algierwork

$1,600per item

About

An iteration on its original life as a “floor mirror," Butter body is now a freestanding stand for modern mobile phones. Situated at chest height and tilted backwards, users can see their reflection in the glass or front facing camera of the mounted phone. Included is a charging cable which runs internally through the piece and out the bottom, extending 5.5 feet. Butter body was created from a combined interest in an object’s presence in space and the magnetic draw that we have to mirrors. It has a solemn existence and serves a specific purpose, dedicating sometimes precious floor space to a task that often requires none. Interacting with this piece brings a sensation of ceremony or ritual to the modern age of technology. This cell tower may be customized to suit different interiors. It is made from wood and can be produced in oak, walnut, or maple, and finished naturally or ebonized. The included charging cable can be matched to the device intended for use, whether it is an Apple or Android product.

Customization Options

Ebonized oak, also available in maple and walnut, natural or ebonized finishes
