About

Imagine that the sun woke you up at the desired time every day.

Lumino is the new way to wake up.

With the use of your smartphone or tablet, the Lumino smartplug transforms your bedside lamp into a sunny and luminous alarm clock! Wake up gently all the time, even in winter.

A few minutes before your set wake-up time, the intensity of your lamp will gradually start to increase, and your brain will be stimulated by the light, little by little, just as the sun would do.

This guarantees a natural and efficient wake-up process. When the light reaches maximum intensity, you can wake up with your choice of a tune from your personal library or a tune suggested by Lumino. 

 The installation is simple:

Thanks to its easy to use application and affordable price, Lumino makes light therapy accessible to everyone!

 Tasks completed so far:

  • Design of the 120V electronic circuit
  • Validation of the light wake up effectiveness
  • Design and fabrication cost estimate
  • Fabrication and assembly schedule
  • Design of the casing and connections
  • Fabrication of prototypes
  • Partial development of the iOS application

Koncepto was founded by two versatile engineers with a passion for science and its application in the modern life.

PHILIPPE-OLIVIER PROVOST – Responsible for industrial design, business development, marketing and sales. P-O has a background in scientific research, product development, project management, nanotech industry and green energy.

JAMES GAGNON-COUPAL– Responsible for hardware and software development. James has a background in project and construction management in the petroleum industry, product development and energy efficiency.

Since they met during their studies in mechanical engineering 5 years ago, they have completed various successful projects: range extender for electric cars, guitar effect units, wooden sail boat, epitaxy equipment, LED lamps, etc.

During winter 2013, unable to find an affordable and efficient luminotherapy lamp, they decided to devise their own solution and Lumino's story began. 

Wanting to get the best advices in all different fields of expertise, they teamed up with software developing professionals, electrical engineers, advisors and mentors so that Lumino can become a well thought out product.

Risks and challenges

After almost two years spent designing, building prototypes and testing Lumino, we are convinced about the relevance of the product. We use our Lumino prototypes to get up every morning and we are amazed by its benefits on our moods and energy.

Thus we are at the point where we are ready to start manufacturing and make Lumino available to all of us!

The several meetings we had with the various stakeholders of the final design, certification and manufacturing of Lumino permitted us to draft realistic budgets and schedules and we are now more confident than ever about the viability of the project.

By reaching the goal of this campaign, we will prove that people believe in Lumino as much as we do and launch the final stage of the project.

You can be a part of the adventure and make Lumino available to everyone.

Thank you very much for your support!
