Noribachi was founded in 2008 by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs Farzad and Rhonda Dibachi.
Early notables in the burgeoning software technology industry, the Dibachis worked together to create Niku, an internet software company, as well as Diba, which pioneered the concept of internet appliances. Noribachi was founded as a clean-energy incubator in Albuquerque, NM. After experimenting with various technologies in the flourishing clean-tech world, such as solar and thermo-electric elements, the Dibachis realized that a niche of light emitting diode (LED) lighting promised to deliver real value and an attractive return on investment.
One fateful afternoon, Farzad decided to take down a pole in Noribachi’s parking lot and retrofit it with LED. The result was a new direction for the company.
Noribachi’s earliest lights were built with single LEDs soldered into a chain. Today, Noribachi has an expansive product line of high-out put LED lights built with modular light engines scalable from as little as six diodes to as many as 378 in one light. The company has over 100 products listed on the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Qualified Products List.
Today, Noribachi is fully based in Los Angeles, CA where it manufactures its industry-changing LED lights.
