Called Punkt. DP 01, the handset rests buttons-up in its cradle, meaning numbers can be dialled without lifting the receiver.
A visual interface allows users to check answerphone messages without listening to the whole stored recording.
The London Design Festival concludes tomorrow. See all our stories about the event here.
The information below is from Punkt:
"I thought about the old telephone, lying face down on it's cradle, and asked myself if it wouldn't be better off the other way round, so you could see the screen and dial the number without picking it up." Jasper Morrison
Punkt. DP 01 truly incorporates the simplicity of a modern DECT phone that just does what a phone is supposed to do: phone calls. No frills and confusing ‚"advanced" functions: the DP 01 is only about easy communication through an outstanding designed phone that will catch everyone's eye in your home.
Visual answering machine
Easily check for new messages using the visual interface by date; this enables you to select directly the messages you are interested in, without having to listen to the whole recorded time sequence.
Memorize up to 100 entries in the contact list with 3 different numbers for each entry.
High quality audio
Enjoy all your conversations in a crystal clear audio quality.
Horizontal and vertical positioning
The clever design of the DP 01 enables you to decide its best positioning in your home: horizontally placed on a surface or vertically wall mounted.
The handset is specifically designed to be stable on a flat surface, in order to let you have a convenient hands-free communication while being busy with some activity.
Ringtones composed by Scanner
A non-intrusive and particularly crisp set of sounds characterizes the DP 01 as a phone that softly integrates itself in any type of environment.
