As technology advances, we spend more and more time feeling stressed by push notifications, short-form information and emails. Meanwhile, reading has for me always been the perfect way to take a break and be more mindful. So naturally, it was important for me to create more than just a functional product when working on the design for Page Anchor; I needed it to also reflect the feelings that I associate with reading.
Inspired by the calmness of the Swedish country side, I designed Page Anchor from the bottom up, obsessed with continuously iterating to make sure that the products could uphold our strict standards. At the point of our Kickstarter, 2 years of tweaking had been put into the product.
The final version features a seamless body crafted in the finest 316L stainless steel. We finish every anchor with a layer of precious metals and a rigorous hand-polish, resulting in its timeless and elegant appearance. Each Page Anchor weighs in at a mere 23 grams to avoid being a burden to carry arround.
Page Anchor is our way of incentivise the world to take a break and be more mindful. Our mission is ultimately to make reading more relaxed and enjoyable through elegant and functional design.
