Better Light = Better Life


As design enthusiasts with a love of community, we know that atmosphere is everything. The right light can be the life of any setting, transforming  gatherings, spaces and even conversation. 

The right atmosphere brings people together to meet, eat, drink, and enjoy. We created Context to bring better light to the world, through sustain
able design and a obsession with ease. 

Context is the creation of two friends, a product designer and engineer, after a night out and ‘candlelit’ drinks in Venice, CA. Seeing cheap looking, plastic candles on two many tables,  we decided it was up to us to create a better a way to light the mood. 
Since then, we’ve created a candle celebrating simplicity, natural light, and quality materials.
