lighting product and experience

About Us

 
 

Our mission is to help people live healthier lives.

 

Moum Design was founded with the simple idea that new technologies demand new ways of working. More than ever before, it is crucial for designers to have the technical and business skills necessary to tackle the complex challenges of today and tomorrow.

That’s why we combine expertise in architectural lighting design with experience in product design and development, strategic planning and project management—in a holistic, human-centric approach known as Experience Design (XD).

Whether you need solutions for new or existing spaces or innovative products for home or work, we are ready to help you.

Concept & Design

By focusing on user experience and ergonomics (e.g. the visual, non-visual and physiological aspects of light), we can create solutions that fulfill your exact needs.

We employ design thinking methodologies, including rapid prototyping. This phase also includes exploring and developing new business models.

Research & Execution

We conduct technical evaluations, trend analysis and focus groups to understand the market fit of your product and propose specific improvements.

We can manage the entire project from paper to production, avoiding the “prototype trap” in between.

Shadows are the negatives of light. They give shape and direction and can be easily captured with paper and a light source. Here we create paper models for rapid prototyping, using techniques learned from kirigami and origami as well as bookbinding handicraft.

This is a model representing our daylight analysis of an industrial art shop. The challenge was to provide enough light for the artists. The top layer represented the daylight, the middle layer the electrical light and the bottom layer the lack of light reaching the artists.

Markus Nao Humanoid Robot has a background from Softbank Robotics where he was born in September 2018. At Moum Design, he works closely with customers in workshops, concept development and trend forecasts. He is passionate about improving the relationship between humans and robots. He believes he has a lot to learn to become more human. However, it's not only robots that need to become more human but humans also need to learn more about interacting with robots. That’s why he is responsible for developing design processes for Moum Design.
