The Page Anchor is beautiful to look at no doubt, but it comes from a remarkable place too. Designed to entice one into reading, or at least trying, the Page Anchor looks beautiful as it sits between pages, not only bookmarking them but also keeping your book wide open for you to read hands-free.
Made from metal, the Page Anchor is classy, and gives the bookmark the status of a product and a keepsake, unlike paper or ribbon bookmarks that are perceived as accessories. The Page Anchor is elegant and useful enough to actually encourage its use, pushing people into reading more, just so that they can enjoy the Page Anchor’s poetic design and its experience too.
The Page Anchor comes crafted in 316L stainless steel with a sublime mirror finish available in Silver, Gold, Rose Gold, and Obsidian Black colors. Its three-pronged design allows it to slide into both paperback and hardbound books, without damaging the spine, and looking extremely worthy of the stylized social-media photos you’re definitely bound to take.
Quite unlike most crowd-funded projects we’ve featured, the Page Anchor is especially significant, because it’s more of the kind of product you’d see on a creative’s portfolio, as a showcase of one’s design thinking and approach to form studies. Its resounding success with more than 850 backers so far is a call to all designers who put small-time projects with real-world value and large appeal in their portfolio and give no thought about actually developing it for people to own and be delighted by. A charming and functional product, fueled by sensible thinking, guiding its users to positive behavior… the Page Anchor’s intended purpose is to keep your book open, but it should also keep your mind open, especially towards the possibility of you taking your own steps to make your design concept come to life!
