an ancient vessel reimagined for the modern world, bringing light, comfort and calm into our complex, fast-paced lives
Light and darkness form a recurring theme across religions, cultural traditions, mythology and science. They touch every aspect of our universe and lives, from the Big Bang Theory’s sudden flash to the way many languages use light to describe the birth of a child, an idea or an identity.

Rituals for Inner Quiet

A ritual is a routine that we perform mindfully and with intention. We bring quality to it, as opposed to the million other daily actions we do on auto-pilot (brush teeth, get dressed, unload dishwasher). Big or small, a ritual is a sacred moment with ourselves. It can be as simple as drinking coffe ...

A journey into the light

Light is essential to our existence. Without it, there would be no plants, no crops, no animals, no us. For thousands of years, the rhythm of human life was dictated by light – by sunrise, sunset, the moon and, later, by fire. Nowadays, the prevalence of electricity means it’s easy t ...
