lighting product and experience

About Us

 
 

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

Concept & Design

By focusing on user experience and ergonomics (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.

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.

Starting out with an interest in designing luminaries, delving into control systems, now creating experiences using light, Åsa stands at the intersection of design, psychology, and technology.

Åsa completed studies for a Master in Architectural Lighting Design from KTH Royal Institute of Technology. She holds a B.A. with distinction in Psychology from Stockholm University, doing research on the effects of light on cognitive performance, and a M.Sc. in Computer Science Engineering from KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

Previously, she led teams of mechanical engineers and industrial designers at Huawei, working in both Sweden and China.
