For who and when?
Mokša is a street furniture that brightens the dark winter and encourages to sit down to have a small break from a hectic cityscape. It is designed to give an interactive experience with adjustable lighting and a warm home-like feeling with wooden walls and roof.
Light furniture play a big role in creating a brighter atmosphere to dim cities. Along with the lighting function they can create meeting points, landmarks, social spaces and recognizability for urban areas. Light furniture are permanent part of modern urban spaces affecting the atmosphere in the city.
City of Lahti, Lahti Energia and LADEC together with the SenCity-project organized the ‘vibrant port road’ innovation competition where they were asking for new products and services that would make the urban environment more vivid. Our winning proposition Mokša was created with a team consisting of the experts in industrial design, outdoor lighting design and environmental art. The product development was done together with Tehomet and Aicci Oy.
Mokša was prototyped in Lahti during the skiing world championships.
The frame is made of painted steel and weather-treated wood.
Mokša has adjustable lighting that users can control with a push of a button.
Why should any city invest to the outdoor lighting design?
