If you throw a rock in a home improvement store you’ll hit at least two dozen different home lighting solutions. There’s smart bulbs and dumb bulbs, island lights and track lighting, and so many sizes of lamps that you could spend a day browsing and still not get through them all. With that being the case, you’d think there’s not really any room for a newcomer to innovate, but it turns out you’d be wrong.
Nanoleaf is a tiny company doing some pretty big things. It was founded in 2012 and its modular light panels were an early Kickstarter success story. The company crushed its funding goal and began manufacturing its light panel kits, which quickly became a trendy lighting accessory for home offices and game rooms. Today, the company makes a couple of different lighting kits, and I was able to try out the Rhythm Edition, which includes nine light panels as well as the “Rhythm Module” that allows the the panels to react to music. If you’re into smart lighting, you’re going to want to pay attention.
