Design submitted by Devindh from the UK.
Devindh says: I called this design ‘Ebi’ because the eventual design reminded me of a lobster. The idea stemmed from my exploration of e-paper. I wanted to incorporate laser cut pieces of e-paper into a design, as this display technology lends itself to custom shapes.
