The MP02 New Generation 4G voicephone

Looking for balance? Here it comes.

Designed with the 21st century in mind.

MP02 4G Mobile Phone

“If anyone wants to talk to me, they can give me a call. Other forms of communication, for example email or social media, are available when I choose to use them – and via a linked device that allows me to use them more effectively.”

Petter Neby signature

Petter Neby, founder of Punkt.

MP02 mobile phone

The Internet as a tool

When it’s time to get online, the MP02’s 4G LTE connection can be shared with a tablet/laptop – which means easier typing in comparison with a smartphone, and a bigger screen. This two-device approach means that the Internet is something you dip into, rather than the other way round.

MP02 mobile phone

Being here, being effective

Focus is at a premium in the digital age. The MP02 4G mobile phone makes it easier to be where you are, whether that’s a family weekend away or an important business meeting. It gives you freedom from a constant onslaught of designed-for-addiction notifications and other distractions. It puts you in charge.

MP02 mobile phone

Connection in the digital age

The Punkt. MP02 minimalist phone is built for connecting with people. It’s comfortable to hold and to use and features excellent audio quality and battery life: a voice phone that works as a phone, with up-to-the-minute styling and an interface that is elegant and efficient.

MP02 mobile phone

Low-key, stylish design

The instantly-recognisable MP02 is the work of renowned product designer Jasper Morrison. It is built around effective simplicity: press the phonebook button to make a call, press the text button to send a message. For everything else, there’s a fast, lean menu system: up, down, select, go.

MP02 Designed for security

Designed for security

The MP02’s minimalist operating system is hardened against attacks. Coupled with the fact that it is not designed around its owner entering sensitive personal information like bank details, private images, etc., this is a phone built for autonomy in the 21 st century.

The MP02 is the first voicephone to offer a downloadable privacy feature that uses the Signal protocol to provide free, encrypted Internet-based calls and texts worldwide via Wi Fi or mobile data (subject to data charges). We believe Signal provides vastly greater security compared to the widely-used encrypted alternatives, which exist primarily as tools for harvesting and selling valuable metadata (contacts lists, who communicated with whom, when it happened, etc.). In the Signal system, all metadata is encrypted.
By using the Signal-protocol, it is possible to add group messaging and voice messages to the MP02.

Signal is provided by a non-profit foundation. To find out how to support the work that they are doing, click here.

Bespoke tones

The MP02’s unique ringtones have their own pedigree: they are the work of respected Norwegian sound artist Kjetil Røst Nilsen.

Solid construction
The housing of the MP02 is reinforced with glass-fibre and finished with a tough, abrasion-resistant coating. Splashproof to IP52 standard.

Pigeon is Signal-compatible

Pigeon is Signal-compatible

Pigeon is compatible with the Signal system which uses VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology to make phone calls and exchange text messages.

Note: Pigeon is an independent creation and has not been endorsed by The Signal Technology Foundation

Pigeon is private

Pigeon is private

Pigeon uses the Signal protocol, recognised as the de facto standard for encrypted messaging. Signal is operated by an independent non-profit foundation and its code is open-source and therefore subject to public scrutiny. Unlike other services, metadata is encrypted (caller/sender, recipient, time of call/message, etc.). Central records are limited to when a Signal account was first created and the date of when it was last used, nothing more: messages and metadata are not stored on central servers. Signal’s users include the UK’s Conservative Party, the EU’s European Commission, and the United States government.

DANNYP MP02 Leather case

Danny P. leather MP02 case

Produced in Daniel Piterak’s small factory in the Czech Republic. Made with veg-tanned Italian dollaro leather: heat treated with an embossed finish, for rigidity and durability.

QWSTION phone case

QWSTION phone case

The QWSTION phone case is made in Zurich using Bananatex ®: a fabric notable for the fact that it comes from the banana tree. The lining is Merino-rayon felt, and the extractor strap is veg-tanned leather. The water-resistant coating is natural wax, and the entire product is plastic-free and biodegradable.


About Danny P.

Daniel Piterak’s company began when he wanted an elegant and well fitted leather case for his own phone, and was dissatisfied with what was then available. That was in 2013, and since then the company (trading as Danny P.) has expanded to produce a range of luxury leather goods that sell across the world – all hand crafted in their small factory in the Czech Republic, some 70 miles south east of Prague.

QWSTION: the company

The manufacturer. Launched in 2008 by a team of five young designers, QWSTION produces a range of strikingly elegant and refreshingly eco-conscious bags and accessories.

They have established a strong reputation for combining classic Swiss minimalist design with 21st century sustainability.
