Last spring, Nanoleaf launched its new HomeKit lighting line called Shapes with Hexagons. Now, two new options that work with hexagons are added to the touch-sensitive modular lighting palette with features like music visualization: triangles and mini-triangles.
Nanoleaf today showed its new modular lighting products Shapes HomeKit in a virtual event and in a press release:
Nanoleaf, industry leader in intelligent lighting, announces the launch of Shapes Triangles and Mini Triangles, the latest addition to the company’s hugely successful Shapes line. The latest innovation from Nanoleaf offers shape interoperability with Nanoleaf’s exclusive Connect + technology, which for the first time allows users to connect different shapes of lighting – including hexagons – together.
Here’s how Gimmy Chu, co-founder and CEO of Nanoleaf, describes the goal of Shapes:
“Nanoleaf’s vision for the Shapes line is to give users complete design freedom to create their most personal lighting experience yet. Smart lighting is about pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, and that’s exactly what we wanted to deliver with our Shapes line, ”said Gimmy Chu, CEO and co-founder of Nanoleaf. “With Triangles and Mini Triangles, users can explore and combine light shapes like never before. The Shapes Line combines intelligent technology and well thought-out design and leads the Smart Decor category for a lighting experience that really knows no boundaries. “
Nanoleaf says it has also improved the snap-on mounting system. This is what it looks like when you connect the different shapes together (we have the new shapes in our hands and will publish a review shortly):
The new Shapes Triangles and Mini Triangles offer so many ways to customize your space and the new sizes make it easy to create anything from a subtle to a bold experience. They also offer the same great features that the Hexagons Shapes contain, such as Rhythm Music Sync, Screen Mirror, and are touch enabled.
Note: The previous generation Nanoleaf triangles are not compatible with the Shapes triangles, mini triangles, and hexagons.
They have HomeKit, as well as Google Assistant and Alexa support. That means you have voice control, the physical controller, Apple’s home app, as well as the Nanoleaf app (new version today) and the Nanoleaf remote control to control these modular lights.
True to the company’s commitment to make usability a top priority, the latest addition to the Shapes line will also include an update to Nanoleaf’s signature app. A new color picker takes the RGB experience to the next level with a larger and more intuitive user interface that allows access to a larger color palette and additional palette ratios to further optimize your color choices. This includes a new dashboard for easier access to all products and removing unnecessary items to put the preferred features in the spotlight. The new redesign becomes much more intuitive and allows users to take any action without any obstacles.
In addition to today’s debut of Triangles and Mini Triangles, Nanoleaf also announced that it will unveil its Essentials line, which will include the company’s first smart light bulbs and light strips, in November. CEO Gimmy Chu announced during the virtual event that the Smart Bulb will sell for $ 20 and the Lightstrip will sell for $ 50.
