Humble by PAD Home

The beginnings of Humble go back to 2018 when Jorren Teertstra, teamed up with his design buddies from APE Amsterdam. With a love of design and an aversion to cables, they set out to create a modern-day alternative to the ultimate mood lighting: candles. Their first lamp quickly became a household favourite, with its long battery life and signature bulb. They named themselves ‘Humble’, after this small and friendly initial design.

From their studio in Amsterdam’s Houthavens neighbourhood, they design and develop their lighting in close cooperation with their production partner in China. They both share the same goal: to build lights that last by using only the most resilient components and materials. In case something does break, don’t worry: all the designs are modular and the components can be easily replaced. They subscribe to the philosophy of lighting for life – not for landfill.

“We hope you’ll enjoy using our lamps as much as we enjoyed creating them.”
