Head designer Marko Ahtisaari (son of the former Finnish president/ Nobel laureate Martti Ahtisaari) hints that one key will be phone-owners’ ability to be more social:
“When you look around at a restaurant in Helsinki, you’ll see couples having their heads down instead of having eye contact and being aware of the environment they’re in.
