This really is a beautiful mobile phone, for the average person or a business user, it has style, speed and has to be the most environmentally friendly mobile phone in the world. Everyone is quite used to the idea of mobile phones being made from metal, plastic and glass but that may have been until now.

The Chute Smartphone by US designer Michael Laut is just like any other ordinary smartphone, but where it differs from the crowd is that it is an outstanding design that may well turn that kind of previous design thinking on it head, as the Chute is a blend of natural materials – bamboo and modern-day technologies.

With its shell made entirely from bamboo, it packs in a whole bunch of features that comes with most smartphones. Organic materials like Bamboo are back in the news again as a viable alternative as it is both highly sustainable and it can be grown extremely fast. With this green mobile phone, the bamboo case is light, totally bio-degradable and recyclable, it’s stronger than plastic, extremely hardwearing and much more Earth-friendly.

A concept phone it may well be, but it could well be the face of things to come?
