Vivien Muller is the founder of Mu Design and Ulo’s creator. He has a master degree in Art Design and is obsessed with design and building new things.
He comes from a long line of architects and there’s a big chance that’s in his DNA, obviously. Electree (the photovoltaic bonsaï) has been the main trigger to start the Ulo venture. The solar panel charger brought Vivien great online exposure preceding the owl camera.
Taking a deeper look at Vivien’s concepts and products, it appears that nature is his muse. Inspiration from nature has a name: biomimicry.
Vivien wanted to ignite a spark of life in his designs. Fractals are also at the heart of Vivien’s inspiration for his past concepts.
Freshly settled in his new apartment with his shiba-inu puppy, Vivien -like many others-, wanted to keep an eye on his newly adopted companion.
Looking for a home camera to buy, Vivien couldn’t find a single model that would not only do the job, but that would also look good. And cute. And shaped like an owl.
With this in mind, Ulo was born! This is how Vivien started rethinking and designing new consumer electronics, making them more capable of a ‘human-like’ interaction.
