Distracted? Focus.

Sometimes it’s good to take a break

MP01 Mobile Phone
Petter Neby

“I was inspired to make a simple mobile phone because my step-daughter was suffering from insomnia due to too much screen-time. I believe technology is a wonderful tool but if we always have a computer in our pocket... well it’s still a tool, but no longer one that we control. The MP 01 offers a middle-path alternative. Some people use it as their only phone, together with a laptop or tablet, but more often it’s used alongside a smartphone – operating as an elegant physical firewall against technological overload.

A mobile phone has something in common with a wristwatch, or a pair of spectacle frames. They’re all quite personal items, and we expect to keep them for a long time. The MP 01 is designed and built to be a pleasure to own.”

Something Special
Most simple phones on the market reuse old-fashioned technology and design, and are sold on price alone. The MP 01 is made in small production runs using top-grade components, and leaves that noughties retro-look behind. It’s an object of real beauty and style, both inside and out.

 
Minimalist interface
The elegant monochrome user interface and custom-built operating system is refreshingly down-to-earth. No app icons, animations, or special effects vying for your attention. Which makes it easy on the eye when you’re using it, and easy to put away when you’ve finished with it.

 
Non-virtual reality
The MP 01 sidesteps the general trend in mobile phone design, where manufacturers are fighting to make their offerings ever thinner. By this logic, the perfect phone would be ‘non-physical’: just pixels floating in the air. The MP 01 has a reassuring solidity that feels good in the hand.

 
Stress-free
Charge your smartphone every night. Charge the MP01 every now and then.

 
Built to keep
In an age of pre-planned obsolescence, where a phone is only expected to last as long as your network contract, the MP 01 stands out as something that you buy and you keep. It’s more than just currently ‘up-to-date’ – it’s timeless.

 
Outstanding sound and build-quality
Crystal-clear audio, recessed Gorilla Glass screen, and a tough, specially-coated body reinforced with glass-fibre.
