Tech That: Grid Studio

Contemporary art made from mobile phones of yesteryear

Regular readers of this column will know that I love pretty much any new tech out there. But what about old tech? That’s where Grid Studio comes in. Grid’s aim is to make beautiful art out of old gadgets from years gone by.

After seeing them all over Instagram and TikTok I had to take a look for myself. The company takes unused iPhones, Android phones and even some Nokia phones, disassembles them and frames them flat, complete with a description of the product and every component within the product. It’s fascinating to see the guts of what goes into a phone, but to display it in such a creative way is genius!

Grid started out with just iPhones but now boasts a solid collection of other disassembled gadgets such as the Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S, BlackBerry Bold 9000 and even gaming consoles from Nintendo, Sega and Sony.

The geek in me loves these pieces of art and the collector in me wants them all!

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
