Smart Lighting Pioneer Nanoleaf Launches Shapes Hexagons, the First Ever Modular Smart Light with Shape Interconnectivity

Smart lighting pioneer Nanoleaf announces the company’s latest innovation, Shapes Hexagons, are now available for pre-order. Hexagons are the first panels to be launched in the company’s Nanoleaf Shapes Line – the first-ever modular smart light with shape interconnectivity. With Connect+technology that enables shape compatibility (Hexagons will work with future products within the Shapes Line*), touch reactivity and infinite color customizations, users will have ultimate design freedom to create everything from abstract geometric layouts to true lighting mosaics.

With its low profile, subtly rounded corners and the thinnest panel we’ve ever created, the six-sided Hexagons allow users to create personalized lighting designs that naturally fit into the home, challenging the harsh lines and sterile styles set by today’s technology standards. “At Nanoleaf, we’re constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible with lighting. The smart home should provide limitless options for users, creating experiences that are unique to each person,”
said Gimmy Chu, CEO and co-founder of Nanoleaf. “With our new Shapes Hexagons leading the Smart Decor category, we’re fusing technology and design to bring to life the intelligence of smart lighting while encouraging creativity through flexible, unified capabilities. We believe the future of smart lighting truly has no limits.”

The completely re-engineered modular light panels are equipped with an improved snap-on mounting system, offering the flexibility to easily remove and redesign for any season, occasion or mood. With more than 16 million colors to choose from, and Nanoleaf’s exclusive LayoutDetect™ Technology, you can look forward to smooth color transitions in real-time that enhance the ambience of any space – even changing in harmony with your music or on-screen entertainment.

Hexagons will still be equipped with all of the features you know and love, including Screen Mirror capabilities, Rhythm Music Sync and touch-enabled experiences that allow you to control your lighting simply with the palm of your hand. The panels are WiFi-controlled with the Nanoleaf App and are also
compatible with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Samsung SmartThings. Nanoleaf Shapes Hexagons are available for pre-order on Nanoleaf’s website here .
