How we started

Back in 2005, Alex was an interaction design student at the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea in Italy. She was given a brief: “In the future, more people will live alone. Design something for them”.

The Good Night Lamp was the answer to that brief. Launched at CES 2013 and featured on television, print and online around the world, it has become an iconic example of how the “internet of things” will improve people’s lives.  With the help of early investors Blaine Cook and Usman Haque that she was able to start commercialising the product.
