Why isn’t tefillin in the written Torah?

Is there any discussion in our tradition why instructions for tefillin are not in the written Torah? There are detailed instructions for Noah’s ark, mishlan, and Temple- tefillin by contrast are not that complex in detail. “Thou shalt construct boxes of black containing parshiot of the Shema blessings, in the following manner…constructed from leather, including straps of X length, etc.”

Just a thought that popped up today
