The Punkt. Library


The Punkt. Library is a selection of books that we have read and think are particularly interesting and relevant in this age of potential technical overload.

They’re all real books, with pages, cover and a spine: plenty of studies have shown that reading non-electronic texts is a much more effective way of accessing content.

The latest addition is neuroscientist Matthew Walker’s astonishing new book Why We Sleep. Highly readable, it presents hard-hitting new research on just how busy we are when we sleep, how many of us can get by on less than seven hours (really very few), and the permanent health costs of long-term sleep deprivation. [It also mentions the benefits of using a dedicated alarm clock rather than a smartphone...]

About Us

Headquartered in Switzerland, Punkt. was established by Petter Neby in 2008 with the idea of bringing a breath of fresh air into the consumer electronics market with outstanding, timeless products designed to do their job, without intruding on their owner's time and attention. From the very beginning, renowned British industrial designer Jasper Morrison was on board as the company’s art director. The name Punkt. is taken from the Germanic word for ‘point’ or ‘full stop/period’, and was chosen to symbolize the way the company’s products are built around simplicity, clarity and focus. Punkt. launched its debut product, the DP 01 Cordless Phone, in January 2011 at Maison et Objet in Paris. Since then, the company has continued to develop stylish, carefully designed and elegantly crafted electronics products aimed at people who want to be in charge of the technology they buy, and who understand the importance of subtle beauty in everyday life.
