From 5x10 steel sheets bended, welded and powder coated, Moya Living designs are born. After decades spent in the laboratory design and manufacturing industry, via parent company Genie Scientific, founder and owner Moya O’Neill saw a void in the commercial and residential community of steel cabinetry. She began by outfitting her home, in Laguna Beach, soon after securing orders with the like of Oakley as well as in the iconic Dakota Building. Today, female-owned Moya Living works with architects and designers across the country. “I’ve wanted to do something creative and the creative energy was right in front of me” O’Neill shares.
While steel is at the forefront of Moya Living’s manufacturing facility, materials like glass, wood, and several other varieties of material compliment her steel designs. Moya Living seeks out recycled materials— wood, cement and quartz tops, and steel— and values materials that are USA made. “The focus isn’t just on steel” O’Neill continues. “It’s what compliments the steel. We like to add the yin and the yang, as opposites attract.”
