Our values

Openness: We believe in being honest and transparent with all customers and team members. Openness allows us to examine our products and processes honestly with a view to improving them.

Customer-driven products: We believe innovation can only succeed if the customer is at the centre of our design and engineering decisions. This trumps process-driven and short-term profit driven approaches to product development.

Respect: The best way of engaging with anyone is with mutual respect. This is sewn into the fabric of Lanterne.

Creativity: Innovation is defined by developing creative solutions to problems. At Lanterne we nurture autonomy and believe in MVPs—Minimum Viable Processes—to allow creativity to flourish.
