MP 01 Mobile Phone
The more our phones do, the more they demand of us. Sometimes it’s good to take a break. But until now, the only alternative to hyper-connected smartphones has been the kind of phone you find at the back of a drawer.
The Punkt. MP 01 is a stylish, well-crafted mobile phone which focuses on modern simplicity, inside and out. It makes phone calls and sends texts, and doesn’t bombard you with notifications, updates or special effects. It is a tool, designed to do a job. And it sidesteps another trend in mobile phone design: manufacturers 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 combines beautiful design with a reassuring solidity that feels good in the hand.
Punkt. worked in partnership with renowned British designer Jasper Morrison to create the MP 01. Jasper’s aim was to integrate unique hardware and software design to achieve a new level of simplicity. Created with a focus on call-making, with direct keys and an intuitive text-based interface, the handset offers unhindered access to all functions, without complex navigation keys and menu systems.
Fitted with a Gorilla Glass screen and a paint finish borrowed from high-end camera manufacturing, the handset has a soft-touch texture with a moulded pattern on the rear, making the MP 01 comfortable to hold and easy to pick up from any surface.
The Punkt. MP01 has received rave reviews from the design press, praising it as a groundbreaking new take on what a modern phone can be.

It might suit you to use the MP 01 in conjunction with a laptop or tablet: the phone lets you text and make calls, and you get a QWERTY keyboard for composing emails.
— Drive safely with Bluetooth:
Use the earpiece provided, or your car’s hands-free system.

If you have to reply to emails and check documents outside the office, having two phones – a smartphone and an MP 01 – is an ideal way to ensure that, when it’s time to switch off, you really do leave your job behind.
— Enjoy some privacy:
With the MP 01 you have everything you need for true peace of mind when you’re off-grid.
