1. Context

I made this experiment back in 2011. At that time, there was a debate in the user interface community about skeuomorphism vs. flat design.

Skeuomorphism refers to the visual design trend which imitates on screen the artifacts and tools we use in real life. Skeuomorphism is supposed to look familiar and work intuitively for most users.

Flat design refers to the visual design trend which disconnects from the visual appearance of physical objects, and sticks to a minimal, geometrical and flat language. Flat design is supposed to be functional and genuine.

I like skeuomorphism. I enjoy capturing and rendering the physical behavior we have intuitively grown to know in our rich physical world.
