About Us

SHADE is a young tech and design startup from Copenhagen, Denmark. We were founded in 2015 by 2 engineers that wanted to revolutionize the way people interact with artificial lighting. Over the course of 2016 we grew the team significantly and created fully working prototypes of the products.

We built a business that is founded on our own principles of being; curious, knowledge driven, and playful. Read more about our early beginnings here.
