The Light Phone

The Light Phone is your phone away from phone. It's a tool that gives us back the most important things we too easily take for granted, our time and attention.

Employees: 8
Quick Pitch:


The Light Phone is your phone away from phone. It’s an object that encourages you to regularly step away from the internet, to enjoy some quality time with yourself or those you love, and maintain a peace of mind knowing that you can still reach and be reached by friends and family. The Light Phone is a seamless extension of your existing phone, keeping your same number and controlled via our desktop app. The experience is a combination of the world's thinnest cell phone built in partnership with Foxconn and our proprietary cloud software. Light makes beautiful objects that respectfully use technology to encourage and empower us. The Light Phone is our first step in making this vision a reality. Light is our movement.
