About his new adventure Daniel Arsham expressed himself as follows:

โ€œI’m always inclined to bring my work into contexts other than those typical of the art world. I conceived Xiaomi 12T Pro as if it were a sculpture whose purpose goes beyond being a functional object; in 20 years the people who will have it will no longer use it as a simple smartphone but as a sculptural object, linked to a particular historical moment and which goes beyond its functionalityโ€œ.
