Best Buy Blog: Reviewing a Whole New Way of Light

November 17, 2016

“But now, a Canadian company has really, actually, reinvented the way we light our homes. Nanoleaf, based in Toronto, has invented lightweight, flat plastic panels that fully illuminate, change colour, morph and swirl. They’re bright, responsive and fully configurable, both in terms of how you place the lights, and how you operate them. This lighting system is called the Nanoleaf Light Panels, and yes, it was themed after the Northern Lights phenomenon known as Aurora Borealis.

The story of how this technology came to be is charming; flying from Toronto to Vancouver, Nanoleaf’s CEO & Co-Founder Gimmy Chu, glimpsed the Aurora Borealis while looking out the window of the plane. He was so inspired by the colour and movement of the lights, he started a three year project that has since become the Nanoleaf Light Panels.”



The Nanoleaf Light Panels were formerly called the Nanoleaf Aurora.
