The team behind Nanoleaf Canvas want to change the way we think about lighting, or at least, change the way we light our homes. Canvas does away with the uninspired traditional light globes replacing them with smart, touch-controlled light panels. Whether it’s creating an art decoration above your sofa or a party wall in the rec room, the only limits are your imagination and budget. A Smarter Kit (the clever name for the starter kit) retails for $319.99 AUD. Personally, I’d love to see a Christmas lights display made out of these.
The Nanoleaf Canvas Light panels are integrated into your smart home, also offering built-in music sync. Maybe the best part is the installation process requires ZERO drilling.
Touch the panel to turn it on, off, adjust brightness, switch animations and activate the music visualiser. Tap the ‘Shuffle’ button on the Control Square to discover 1000s of scenes. Send soft ripples of a Koi pond running across the walls, and then touch again to set the perfect mood for date night. There’s a Canvas Scene for every scenario. With a multi-faceted texture effect, the Canvas’ optics play-off of the traditional marble tile – capturing that human touch often neglected by today’s smart home.
“With the Canvas, you decide how your light fits into and makes your everyday life better,” says Gimmy Chu, CEO & Co-Founder of Nanoleaf. The advanced customisations offer the smartest controls while the multifaceted marble-like design makes the Canvas a standalone piece of art on your wall.”
Each Smarter Kit comes with 8 Light Squares, 1 Control Square, 1 power supply, 9 linkers, stencil paper and mounting tape. Expansion packs offer additional panels in a wider variety of shapes. You can find Nanoleaf Canvas online and via JB Hi-Fi in Australia.
