Vienna based furniture and product designer Klemens Schillinger recently unveiled his second project dedicated to helping tech addicts. The Substitute Phone serves as a followup to the Offline Lamp and functions as a calming limitation that helps smartphone addicts going through withdrawal. The Substitute Phone features stone beads incorporated into a smartphone-shaped and weighted acetal body, which allows users to perform scroll, zoom and swipe motions.

Check out the Substitute Phone above and stay tuned for a release via Klemens Schillinger’s website in the near future.
