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. 

Inspiration

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

Light is a shaper of people experiences. It has an incredible power to change our perception of the world and we love to use the emotional impact of light in our projects. Our aim is to explore and use light as a tool to develop unique atmospheres and identities, defining spaces, moods, adds value and enhance the visual environment. At BOON we focus on details and integration of subtle and unnoticeable light in order to exalt the project beauty.

Independence

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.

Collaboration

Working in cooperation with architects, interior designers, landscape architects and clients, we create lighting design oriented solutions which are innovative, sustainable and people based. 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.
