Back in January at CES 2020, Nanoleaf presented its latest product called Shapes. The company, known for its amazing-looking, yet expensive, light panels promised to resolve a common complaint: compatibility. In the future, any new released form would work with the previous ones. It started with hexagons, and now we have the next two shapes ̵
As promised, both the new triangle shape and mini triangle shape work together and with the original hexagon plates. Each starter kit comes with a plug. However, if you connect them all together, you only need one connector unless you have more than 21 panels. If you go past 21 you’ll need a second connector.
Like the hexagons, the triangles and mini-triangles also benefit from a newly revised assembly system. Instead of attaching the panel directly to the wall (as with Nanoleaf Canvas), a mounting panel sticks to the wall and you can peel the panel away from the panel for adjustment. It’s easier to use and customize than the original system.
Nanoleaf will sell the kits in different versions. You can purchase a starter kit (called the Smarter kit) for the larger triangles that comes with seven triangles, a connector, mounting plates and tape, a controller, and linker connectors for $ 199.99.
If you already have a compatible Nanoleaf Shapes system, you can purchase the Triangles Expansion Pack for $ 59.99. It comes with three triangles, mounting plates and tape, linkers, and a controller.
The Mini Triangles Smarter Kit costs $ 119.99 and includes five Mini Triangles, a connector, mounting plates and tape, a controller, and linker connectors. The Mini Triangles Expansion Pack, also priced at $ 119.99, includes 10 Mini Triangles, mounting plates and tape, a controller, and linkers.
You can purchase all new shapes, including hexagons, from Nanoleaf starting today. We have all three forms on hand and you can look forward to a full review in the near future.
