Company details

Nyoka Design Labs is creating an ecologically-prosperous future by developing earth-friendly technology to replace standard toxic, wasteful products. We use sustainable biotechnology and material science advances to build inspiring and innovative tech following a circular economy model. We are tackling the $4 billion portable lighting industry by developing two deeply sustainable technologies designed to replace single-use glow sticks and LEDs while simultaneously innovating the packaging required to successfully deploy these technologies for recreational, industrial, and humanitarian purposes.
