Our time and attention are the two most important things that we take for granted the hundreds of times a day that we open our smartphone. So many technology products today are claiming to "make our lives better"; they are engineered to keep us hooked. They are being built and funded because we will become addicted to them, not because we actually needed them. As humans we are vulnerable. Being more "connected" couldn't possibly make us any happier.
We design beautiful objects that respect and empower. Technology that helps us appreciate life more; that serves, not enslaves us. We believe that the world deserves an alternative option to the current and unsustainable direction of technolgy. An honest technology company for humans.
