About Us

A challenge

It is often said people don't care about privacy. But in many cases people do want to switch to something better, but they simply lack good alternatives.

We are a group of Dutch technologists, designers and thinkers, most of us form Amsterdam, who felt that we could inspire the market by creating examples of the products we would like to see. Our goal with Candle is to provoke the market into creating better products, based on the principles of value sensitive design.

The future looks bright. Just as the market for ecological food has exploded in the past decade, we foresee a similar growth for ethical technology. We hope to be a part of that change.

We wrote a book about our design principles
