It seems today, that products are being designed more and more for features and functionality- but hardly any tech companies design to stop addiction– an ever increasing phenomena in the world of tech.
That is, until one company defied expectations and made a phone which can help your addiction problem- without compromising on great design. Meet the Light Phone.
As the name suggests- the light phone has two functions- to send and receive calls. It’s design is also as minimal as it’s function- it features hardly any real keys, with most of them being touch sensitive, and lighting up on it’s beautiful ‘white’ (or ‘night’) canvas.
The Light Phone is now available to pre-order from their website (thelightphone.com), having quickly reached it’s funding goal from crowd funding. The phone comes from Joe Hollier and Kai Tang, with Hollier having a background in Design and the Arts, and Tang having come from the Phone Development region. They now run their business out of the historic Navy Yard in Brooklyn.
