Smarter by Design
Our story begins with three adventure-seeking, life-loving dream chasers who yearned to make an impact on the world. The three founders of Nanoleaf met while building a solar-powered car for the University of Toronto’s World Solar Challenge team, and reunited years later to collaborate on what became our first consumer product.That first product was launched on Kickstarter in 2012. Originally called the NanoLight, it was the first consumer lightbulb to deconstruct and reimagine a tired design aesthetic. At 133 lumens per watt, it was also the most energy efficient lightbulb in the world—going on to win multiple design and efficiency awards through 2015 as the Nanoleaf One. 2016 was a major milestone, we began to tackle creating smart home lighting that would be efficient and desirable, winning the CES innovation awards with our Nanoleaf Light Panels. With time, our unique products have grown in number and depth, just like our team. We’ve gone from a 4 people office space in the MaRS Discovery District 5 years go, to now comfortably situated in our cozy headquarters under the watchful gaze of CN Tower in the heart of downtown Toronto, with supporting offices in Shenzhen and Paris.

Nanoleaf is a pioneer and never intends to follow others. If someone else in the world is making something, we will not make the same thing. We believe that people should work together to push the boundaries of technology and design as they exist today.
