Tried And Tested: Nanoleaf
THE LIGHT OF YOUR LIFE
Not a new face to the lighting industry, Nanoleaf continues to create pioneering designs that seek to infuse your home with an ambience that you control to suit your mood. In keeping with the company’s dedication to lighting solutions, its ‘Shapes – Hexagons’ and ‘Elements’ ranges add a welcome pop of colour and visual interest to your home. The packaging remains true to the brand and is elegant and sophisticated. While Nanoleaf’s technology enables users to create beautiful and intricate designs, the instructions are simple and user-friendly. Downloading the app on iOS was easy and convenient thanks to the QR Code that linked the Nanoleaf products to the app – making the process quick and flawless.
From there, your creativity can really take flight. Be inspired by the endless opportunities presented by Nanoleaf’s geometric shapes and natural forms to style your space as you please or follow a range of elegant pre-designed templates.
Once you’ve decided on the masterpiece you would like to bring to life, simply connect each light to the connector piece and arrange as you would like. In keeping with the whole process, the included mounting tape makes decorating your wall just as simple without the need for any complicated power tools.
Once installed, you can bring your vision to life and customise the colours, if applicable, and brightness using the app. Both the ‘Elements’ and ‘Shapes’ collections have a myriad of downloadable lighting styles that you can apply. The lights are also compatible with smart home systems, such as Apple Home, and will harmonise with your existing automation to enliven your interior.
Nanoleaf’s ‘Elements’ draws inspiration from the natural environment and these warm wooden panels remain true to its biophilic design by illuminating in warm white hues – keeping the look clean and elegant. The timber tones work perfectly with other woodgrain elements within the home. While the ‘Shapes’ in ‘Hexagons’ are more customisable and offer customisable RGB lights, allowing a broader range of colours to brighten your living space. Eponymously named, ‘Shapes’ are available in two sizes of triangles and hexagons – allowing users to get creative with the art they create. ‘Shapes’ assimilated perfectly with a games room and can even pulse in time with the beat of music. Regardless of your choice, these nifty gadgets are a guaranteed way to brighten your space and set the mood – whether it be an intimate date night, or a relaxed evening filled with movies and takeaways.
