At Light & Motion we believe there is a better way. A better way of producing product, treating our employees, the planet and our customers, but ultimately we believe there’s a better way to light your path.
To us a light is not simply about how bright it is, or about eking out another minute of run time, these are simply examples of limitations to overcome. To us, light is transformative. It represents the dawn of time, the dawn of a new day, hope, insight, the advancement of awareness, even a bright idea. Thomas Edison’s vision was not about the light bulb, it was about electricity. The bulb was simply the vehicle he chose to demonstrate his vision, the possibility electricity represented to the world in the form of distributed power to the masses.
We too have a lofty vision. It’s not about Lumens however it’s about enhancing your experience of environments heretofore limited, even enhancing your experience of the light itself. We believe light should always be at your fingertips in an ideal way. Whether you’re deep underwater, riding a mountain single track, or trekking in the wee hours of the night, we endeavor to be there with you providing perfect vision of what lies ahead with a tool that heightens the moment like a great watch heightens the experience of time.
A good light is a fabulous thing to contemplate, a marvel of miniaturized classical engineering. Harnessing the ideal beam of light from the smallest of packages can almost seem like magic when done well. It’s what drives us. We want you to be moved by what you see. Only the right amount of light allows for that. If you doubt its importance ask any photographer.
So, to relegate the value of light to those of us that venture into the darkness to simply how bright it is would be as ludicrous as likening Michelangelo’s chisel to a sledgehammer, Ansel Adam’s process to a Polaroid. We appreciate the technical wit and artistry required to create the perfect tool for the job. It’s a holistic undertaking, from concept, to design, to engineering and production. We believe it takes more than a simple battery and diode to satisfy the needs of our customers. It’s why Light & Motion creates everything under one roof, spends 10x more on R&D than marketing, and is miserly with every single raw material, because we believe there is always a better way.
