When we started to work on Minium it was a minimalist, e-paper phone. We found that a lot of people were interested in the concept but many wanted more than a phone with reduced functionality. As we spoke with more of you and dug deeper into your needs, we ended up evolving both the product and the company. We are now excited to announce the new direction of our phone and brand as Siempo.

What if your phone was designed to help you live well?

We are constantly connected to anyone in the world, but increasingly disconnected from our true selves. We find it hard to simply just be.

Our conversations with you made it clear that our devices and technology should be doing more to promote a better way of life. We live in an attention economy but the big players aren’t doing anything about it. We believe that it is up to startups to change this is by designing products that help us spend our time well, in whichever way we define this for ourselves.

Siempo

To achieve this, we are creating a phone that respects your time and attention so you can find balance in this hyper-connected world. We are starting small and simple with an experience that makes it easy to connect when you want to, and unplug when you don’t. In time we will expand on this to satisfy a wide array of needs.

The name Siempo has a lot of meaning for us. In Spanish, “Tiempo” means “Time”, and Siempo makes us think of “Tempo” and “Simple”. Siempo is about taking control of your time, connecting at your own tempo and living simply.

Our hope is that no matter how you use Siempo, it will give you more mental space, introduce peace of mind and connect you to a better version of yourself.

Coming Soon

With gratitude,
Andreas, Andrew, Jorge and Mayank
