Design

The light phone

Designed to be used as little as possible. It will never have social media, clickbait news, email, an internet browser, or any other anxiety-inducing infinite feed. It’s an experience we call going light.

Light is not just another tech company. We build all of the tools from scratch to ensure there are absolutely no third party apps tracking you. In this time of ‘Surveillance Capitalism’ and the ‘Attention Economy’, the Light Phone represents a different option. You are the customer, not the product. This is a phone for humans.

Sugru mouldable glue

I’d love to play with this!

While studying for my MA in product design at the RCA in London, I had a bit of a crisis. A niggling thought stopped me in my tracks.

“Do I really want to design more products? There’s far too much waste in the world. I don’t want to buy new stuff all the time. What if I could fix and improve and reimagine the stuff I already have, to make it work better for me?”

Colors do not clash, they vibrate

And if you still don’t feel confident, take heart in the wisdom of legendary interior designer David Hicks, who believed that the idea of colors clashing with one another was a fiction cooked up by “genteel women” in the 1930s. “Colors do not clash,” he said. “They vibrate.”

Look at Matisse

Do what I do whenever I have a color problem. Look at Matisse.

Our food system

Our food system is not broken. It was designed this way—and that means it’s time for a redesign. That’s why we started this podcast: we go where the questions are, looking at the gaps in current systems and talking to the people who are building the food systems we’ll need in the future… right now.

Because how we grow, distribute, and access food will shape the future of our communities, businesses, and planet.
