Lumen shower

Lumen is a shower concept inspired by the rising sun. Sunshine and natural light are essential for our wellbeing. The lamp that is integrated in the Lumen shower emits rays of light that activate vitamin D production, just like daylight. This helps users to stay fit, healthy and energized. During a shower session the light will emit the required amount of sunlight per day, so even in the darkest of places users can get their daily dose of sunlight. To enhance the overall wellness experience, the shower has an integrated boiler: users no longer have to wait for the shower to heat up and this helps to save roughly 30% of water.

 

LUMEN

Inspired by the sunrise, Mora Lumen uses a unique combination of light therapy and hydrotherapy to wake you up and revitalise your body in a natural way.

Project outline

Lumen is the result of a 3 week project at the Umeå institute of Design, done in collaboration with Mora.

My personal goal in this project was to further develop  user shadowing methods, organising workshops, design research, storytelling, and model making.

Challenge

With our daily lives getting more and more busy people are searching for a place where they can relax and unwind in their home. One of the downsides of this hectic lifestyle is that we spend much of our time inside and don't get our daily (required) dose of sunlight, which leads to a lot of health problems in the long run.

Result

LUMEN is a shower concept inspired by the rising sun. Sunshine and natural light are essential for our wellbeing. The lamp that is integrated in the Lumen shower emits rays of light that activate vitamin D production, just like daylight. This helps users to stay fit, healthy and energized.
