We started with a simple concept of improving people's health through lighting. We worked through countless research papers, development projects, prototypes, tests, and early marketing activities leading up to our successful crowdfunding campaign. Now we're taking what we've learned and iterating on the newest Ario Directional Module, which will give more people and businesses the option of healthy lighting.
