Gantri is the world’s first digital manufacturer of lighting. We help independent creators bring original, sustainably-made lights to more homes.
Our story starts with curiosity. We wondered why we saw the same, mass-produced designs everywhere and why good lighting costs so damn much. We saw creators with original ideas, unable to get their designs into people’s homes. Why? The complex, costly process of mass manufacturing.
It can take up to 2 years and hundreds of thousands of dollars to develop a new product. Lights are made in the tens of thousands to fulfil production minimums, costing more in manufacturing, shipping and storage. Not to mention the environmental impact—lights are often made using toxic materials and unsold inventories are sent to the landfill in droves when trends change. With such heavy costs and high risk, we knew there had to be a better way.
At Gantri, we're building a future where independent creators can easily transform their ideas into real products. And where design lovers can fill their homes with original designs made with the environment in mind. Welcome to a new age of manufacturing. Digital manufacturing and creator-led designs are our future.
We invented a new way for new designs to come to life. Our pioneering digital manufacturing process uses software and 3D printing to produce lights on demand, cutting down development costs, waste and greenhouse gases. The entire process is 4x faster than traditional manufacturing from sketch to delivery. When you place an order, the light is built, quality tested, packaged and shipped directly from our facility in California.
By using this revolutionary technology, we’re able to give creators a platform to develop their ideas into products in a way that’s simple, sustainable and reaches more customers. Everyone benefits—it means that more people can afford to thoughtfully curate their space with original designer lights.
We believe good ideas come from everywhere and creative expression is set free when there are no quotas. Creators use Gantri’s manufacturing guidelines and proprietary materials to turn their great ideas into real products.
Our new-age facility in the Bay Area uses 3D printing technology and proprietary software to manufacture lights with minimal offcuts. Made to order means that each light creates lower emissions and less landfill waste than traditional manufacturers.
We believe in filling your home with objects that reflect who you are. Gantri makes it easy to find unique lights by top creators, at prices you can afford. Each is completely original, intricately considered and made to last a lifetime.
