Hi there, my name is Mathijs, I’m a product designer from Amsterdam, I think single-use bike lights are a waste of materials, money and time. That is why I founded Litta; a durable, theft-proof bicycle light that recharges itself. I grew up as son of a designer, and developed a great interest into technology and making things. In 2018 I got my master’s degree in Industrial Design Engineering at the Technical University of Delft. Since then I have been working as a freelance product designer on various projects.
