Commenting on the collaboration, Wissam Shawkat said: “Each phone combines hand craftsmanship with leading edge technology, resulting in a sensorial experience in both design and function. Similarly, I aim to elevate the art of Arabic calligraphy; whilst maintaining the heritage of the traditional Arabic art form, I aim to advance the aesthetic to something contemporary and modern.”
