Designers Joe Hillier and Kaiwei Tang, who were both disillusioned with the idea that modern technology enhances our quality of life, have designed the Light Phone. It purposefully lacks features encouraging and empowering people to leave their smartphones behind.
Designed to work in conjunction with your existing phone, the Light Phone still allows you to be contacted via phone call. It provides a level of disconnect from the internet and smart phone features and is intended to be used as little as possible.
Hillier and Kaiwei felt compelled to design something other than an app to create the back- to- basic interface they felt so passionate about. The result is this stripped back LCD handset, with a numerical keypad, that exclusively receives and makes phone calls.
