About us

Hello! We’re Humble and we have a fresh take on wireless lighting.

Where it all started

The beginnings of Humble go back to 2018 when Jorren Teertstra teamed up with his design buddies from APE Amsterdam. With a love of design and an aversion to cables, they set out to create a modern-day alternative to the ultimate mood lighting: candles. The first lamp quickly became a household favourite, with its long battery life and signature bulb. They named themselves ‘Humble’, after this small and friendly initial design.

From our studio in Amsterdam’s Houthavens neighbourhood, we design and develop our lighting in close cooperation with our production partner in China. We both share the same goal: to build lights that last by using only the most resilient components and materials. In case something does break, don’t worry: all our designs are modular and the components can be easily replaced. We subscribe to the philosophy of lighting for life – not for landfill.

We hope you’ll enjoy using our lamps as much as we enjoyed creating them.
