The manufacturer Nanoleaf, who for its Light panels and the relatively new Light remote control in the form of a twelve-sided cube is known, has now announced a new product in advance: the Nanoleaf canvas. The "light squares" with LED technology can be attached to the wall as individual modules and thus form a "canvas", which enables play of light, color changes and even light that reacts to music.
Nanoleaf Canvas, a combination of square light modules, is to be presented at this year's IFA at the end of August / beginning of September and then brought to the European market in winter. According to the manufacturer, the product will be “new modular light squares for even more design options” that are “individually configurable and easily expandable”. Thanks to the touch panels, the “lighting experience can be adapted and personalized to any situation”. The large-area light effect of the Nanoleaf canvas is rounded off by illuminated edges. An integrated rhythm function brings music visualization in real time.
Nanoleaf Canvas was also presented at the CES at the beginning of the year:
In addition to the "Touch Control" function, ie touching or pressing the light squares to switch on, switch off and trigger actions, Nanoleaf Canvas can also be controlled via the Nanoleaf Remote and the Nanoleaf Smarter Series app. In addition, there is integration into the smart home that has already been set up - with HomeKit, among other things. The light elements can be controlled via the Apple Home app on the iPhone or iPad, as well as voice control via Siri.
