See Us on Yahoo? Start Here
You might have seen us on Yahoo News with Katie Couric. If so, welcome! And now that you’re here, you might be wondering, what the heck is LifeEdited? Allow us to explain.
First, we are a business. We were founded five years ago by a guy, also our CEO, named Graham Hill. He gave this nifty TED Talk in 2011 that explains our mission. To sum it up, the world–and North America in particular–has seen a super-sizing of everything: housing sizes, the amount of stuff we accumulate, the amount of information we consume, etc. LifeEdited is out to provide an antidote to this phenomenon, showing how the right application of design and technology can enable us all to live happier, simple lives using less stuff, space and information. Our first major demonstration of this principle was shown through our first prototype apartment–a 420 sq ft space that could seat 12 for dinner, sleep two guests comfortably and privately and do many other things that made you forget its compact dimensions.
Next, check out the above video for a quick explanation about what our business does specifically. In short, we act as a specialty consultant to real estate developers and architects. We work with them to help deliver as much possible function to every square foot they build. To see some examples of our work, go here, here and here. We are also starting to develop our own real estate projects.
And then of course, we are a website and newsletter. Our mission is to show people how they can live amazing lives using less stuff, space and information than the status quo might have us believe. The site focuses on showing off amazing architecture, design as well as publishing relevant news and tips for the less is more way of life. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter that delivers regular news direct to your inbox.
