Seems like plenty of us are ditching traditional landline phones for mobile devices or VOIP solutions, but that hasn't stopped design living legend Jasper Morrison from tackling the challenge of improving the good ole digital cordless telephone. His latest design, the Punkt: DP01 flips the handset positioning upwards, making it easier to determine whether to answer or let the call go to voicemail. The hammock style cradle design Jasper Morrison created for Punkt can be used on a flat surface or even wall mounted; features otherwise appear to offer the basic options of a cordless phone circa 1999, on, off, phone number storage and voicemail access/recordings. One notable tech feature is Morrisson worked with a team of sound engineers to create a selection of phone ring tones created for specific work environments. No word yet about pricing or availability, but add this hot little number amongst the very small selection of telephones we'd want in our household from an aesthetic standpoint.
