Neonatal care unit
How can we provide the right light at the right time for neonatal babies, their parents, and hospital staff? Premature babies are particularly light sensitive and should be exposed to little light, while staff need sufficient light to do their work. Our answer is dynamic lighting: light scenes that adapt to the different tasks, at different times of day. Reports: Part 1 and Part 2 (Swedish).
The client is Region Skåne (Sweden) for Helsingborg Hospital and the project is part of Lighting Metropolis. Moum Design AB was lighting design project manager, collaborating with WSP Ljusdesign in Malmö.
Concept Workshop Virtual Reality Demo
How would you communicate the subtle characteristics of different kinds of light when meeting clients? The best way is to experience it for yourself. Technologies used in Virtual Reality (VR) headsets today can be used to render advanced graphics forming different light atmospheres. Moum Design AB arranged a workshop to form a business strategy helping the client to find the right balance between technology, price point, target group and concept. The client is Fagerhult and they showcased their first VR Demo during PLDC in Paris, November 2017.
Eskilsparken, outside Stockholm
This was a temporary lighting installation in a park. The challenge was to invite visitors to the park, even when dark.
The entrance was created in a layered fashion, with three layers of experience, with the next layer partly visible from the previous. Within the park, the idea was to reduce the contrast between the walkways and the abandoned areas, in order to give visitors a visually appealing overview and improve the feeling of safety. Inspired by search lights, a light pattern was created in the center of the park.
In offices and schools, dynamic lighting schemes can improve productivity and wellbeing.
