Back in January at CES 2020, Nanoleaf presented its latest product, called Shapes. The company, known for fantastically stylish yet expensive light panels, promised to resolve a common complaint: compatibility. In the future, each new form released would work with those that came earlier. It started with hexagons, and now we have the next two shapes ̵1; Triangles and Mini Triangles.
As promised, both the new Triangles shape and the Mini Triangles shape will work together with the original Hexagon panels. Each starter kit comes with a connector, but if you link them completely, you only need one connector, as long as you do not exceed 21 panels. If you go further than 21, you need a second contact.
Like the hexagons, the Triangles and Mini Triangles benefit from a recently modernized mounting system. Instead of attaching the panel directly to the wall (as with Nanoleaf Canvas), attach a mounting plate to the wall and you can pull the panel from the plate for adjustments. It is easier to apply and adjust than the original system.
Nanoleaf will sell kits in several styles. You can buy a starter kit (called a smarter kit) for the larger triangles that comes with seven triangles, a connector, mounting plates and tape, a control unit and connectors for $ 199.99.
If you already have a compatible Nanoleaf Shapes system, you can purchase the Triangle expansion pack for $ 59.99. It comes with three triangles, mounting plates and tape, links and a control unit.
The Mini Triangles Smarter Kit costs $ 119.99 and includes five Mini Triangles, a connector, mounting plates and tape, a control unit and connectors. And the Mini Triangles expansion pack, which also costs $ 119.99, comes with 10 Mini Triangles, mounting plates and tape, a controller and links.
You can buy all new shapes, including Hexagons, on Nanoleaf’s website starting today. We have all three forms at hand, and you can look forward to a full review in the near future.
