Mission Statement

We create lighting systems that elevate the spaces we inhabit and are kind to the planet we share.

Our Mission

For companies with the fortitude to write one, a mission statement asks the existential question: Why do you exist?

Vode’s mission is not to make better lighting or even to sell more of it, although both of those are goals of ours. No, our mission is bigger than that. Our mission is one of transformation: to convert energy into its most efficient light forms, to invigorate architecture with minimalist lighting systems, and to inspire the people who work under our light to be their best.

The approach we take towards product design demonstrates a bias for utility, simplicity and sustainability. We know that our products have consequences – in manufacture, in usage and afterwards, when their useful life has ended. So we work tirelessly to reduce their impact at every stage.


To convert energy to its most efficient, most satisfying light forms.



To invigorate architecture with small, simple, adaptive solutions.



To inspire the people who work under our light to be their best, both here in Sonoma and around the world.



To consume the fewest resources, to leave the smallest footprint.
