BOON is an independent creative lighting design studio based in Lisbon, founded with a mission to provide inspirational lighting solutions and to ensure our client’s expectations are exceeded.
We believe lighting is a “BOON” for architectural projects and we work with light as a material, bringing together art, science & technology. 


Natural light inspired us every day and teach us to explore light and darkness. We love to integrate it into the design of our projects whenever possible.

Creative Philosophy

We love to explore the emotional impact of light in our projects, and we shape light to create space experiences, unique atmospheres and identities, defining spaces and moods, and enhancing the visual environment, with the aim of delivering exceptional lighting outcomes for our clients.


As an independent lighting designer studio, we offer impartial advice and personal service focusing completely on the benefit of our clients. We have no commercial links with manufacturers, suppliers and installers of lighting equipment. We always select the best solutions for the project, delivering the highest quality on time and in budget.


Our team comes from different professional backgrounds and is committed to achieve high-quality lighting projects and enrich each project we deliver.
We highly value the personal exchange of ideas with the project team at all stages of design and see this as an integral part of the ongoing design process.
Working in cooperation with architects, interior designers, landscape architects and clients leads us to the best results.
