Global Q&A Series: An Interview with Nanoleaf CEO Gimmy Chu
There are a number of ways for consumers to dive into the smart home market, but one of the easiest and most direct is through smart lighting. Getting a connected light bulb, screwing it into a lamp or ceiling can, and downloading an app that lets you control that bulb is about as basic as it gets with smart lighting.
Nanoleaf is a manufacturer that has a range of smart light bulbs, but the company has pushed smart lighting in some incredibly unique directions. It’d be unfair to call them simply a smart light bulb maker. Founded in 2012, the company has really been on a crusade to turn lighting into something more than just an afterthought in the home. Through a unique array of products, Nanoleaf has ushered in an era of personalized lighting experiences that extend well beyond traditional means.
Nanoleaf Canvas, for example, is a touch-control smart light panel solution is an edge-lit product that can cover an entire wall and ceiling, giving the user complete control over the look and feel of their living space. Design is a key element to everything the company does, and it really shines through (pun intended) in all of their products.
