WHAT IS A MOFONE?
The Mofones utilize already existing phone components wherever possible and are constructed by hand in Los Angeles. The retro style phone accessories are fitted with a special iPhone case, which locks onto the phone and attaches it to the unit. The iPhone can then be snapped into and out of the case so customers can mix and match their Mofones based on their moods. Mofones are ornamental and the iPhone functions otherwise exactly the same. The Mofone creates superior grip when texting and offers increased comfort, allowing the user to lean hold the phone on their shoulder just like in the good old days.
Mofone has always been about reimagining functionality and fashion, said designer and Mofone CEO Morrisa Maltz.
These affordable accessories allow me to bring my vision to the masses and are just the first in what will be a large offering from Mofones.
Mofone was founded by Los Angeles artist Morrisa Maltz to take the mobile accessory and turn it into a work of art. Her products were available on her website and Etsy.com and garnered a select following of tastemakers. Spotted by a buyer for Urban Outfitters, what started as an art project for a select few is now available at tenderproduct to everyone who wants to bring fun and whimsy into their everyday lives. Mofones uses oversized and usually ridiculous artist made designs, tapping into the history of technology, to create our products. Mofone’s is a completely artist run company and employs artists in all departments as part of its creative strategy.
