Pip Phone, Hulger

The second of two phones commissioned by Hulger, the Pip* phone is designed to be a cleanly styled, lightweight addition to the ubiquitous mobile phone.  Later issued as a special edition, leather-clad version in collaboration with designer Bill Amberg – the Pip* phone has received numerous design awards and been featured in fashion spreads in Vogue, Elle and GQ.

The Pip* phone built on Hulger's original concept to liberate classic chunky telephone handsets and allow them to connect with the latest advancements in telecommunications by designing them to be plugged-in to mobile phones and Skype systems.

Whilst the Penelope* phone referenced the golden age of glamour, the Pip* phone was a clean, slim line handset. It drew its design inspiration from 70's styling and Bruce Lee's iconic yellow tracksuit, but was designed to be lightweight and pocket-friendly. Crucially, by connecting to a mobile device, the handsets could be pared down to simply a speaker, microphone and button (to accept a call).

The Pip* phone received both Japanese Good Mark and iF product design awards and has featured in The New York Times, Vogue, Elle, ICON, The Times, Engadget, Gizmodo, Surface, Nylon, Marie Claire, Wallpaper* and The Boston Globe.
