Connect offline
Thoughtful spaces

We’ve all been there — a noisy bar with bright lights and loud music. You have to repeat yourself to be heard. It’s impossible to have a real conversation.

Norn takes you to thoughtful spaces that feel like home. You won’t have to shout. You won’t be distracted. Connect offline in a healthier state of mind.

Focus your mind
Airplane mode

You’re in the middle of a great conversation — but your phone buzzes every few minutes. Are you really listening or is your mind elsewhere?

Norn conversations happen with your phone in airplane mode — the simplest way to focus your mind.
