Tech businesses and websites are … well... very tech. Yes, we are geeks, too, we love technology, science, evolution. We love it and that’s what got us here.
So we won’t censor the love out of it just to keep it ordinary. Technology is fun, we are doing this with passion so we want to share our excitement and journey through this page.
CARLA AND STEFAN
In June 2016, the ShineOn product idea was born. It began asa handmade wood lamp. Later it got extended to a handmade LED wood lamp. And since we loved tech why not a integrate a home assistant in it? Everything was chosen and analyzed carefully.
In August 2016 the prototype was built by Stefan from scratch (hardware and software). Tested, redone, optimized, redesigned, retested again and again. A lot of market research and more testing for more than a year
After getting close to perfection we were ready to share it with the world.
We never kept track of the costs of materials and hours of work we put into it. We wanted quality and perfect functionality.
So… why Bending Colors. Because it has colorful animated led lights. Future products (already in concept phase) will also be led based products.
Stefan was rejected at his first ever job interview. Two weeks later he got a job at one of the biggest IT companies around for 4 times the money.
Stefan is also a commercial maritime officer and drummer.
Carla used to be a pianist. And a dancer. And a wrestler (for a short time).
Thank you to all of our friends and family and supports who became our friends. You are a big part of our story.
The name is very close to our hearts. One of our nieces couldn’t pronounce Stefan’s name correctly, she pronounced it Shine. And our family calls him Shine ever since.
ShineOn is home.
ShineOn is family.
