I designed the Xiaomi 12T Pro as if it were a sculpture whose purpose goes beyond a functional object; in 20 years the people who will have it You will no longer use it as a simple smartphone, but as a sculptural objectthat is tied to a specific historical moment and that goes beyond its functionality‘ he said himself Daniel Arham. “Daniel’s work often plays with the concept of time, both future and past.
