THROUGHOUT my journey as a content creator, I have discovered that lighting is everything.
From getting accurate photos to setting the mood for a night of gaming, Nanoleaf has you covered. I personally have the Nanoleaf Hexagons and Triangles for my own gaming/office room, and always enjoyed playing around with them to change the vibe of my space.
Before I even opened the box, the smart features began. The Nanoleaf app provides lots of guidance on how to arrange the lines, while also controlling the brightness and scene settings. I found myself quite indecisive about how to arrange them so I needed as much help as I could get. Once I finally decided on an arrangement the process of mounting them was simple and they clicked together with ease. You are limited to 60 degrees of motion which did restrict my design slightly, but I found the backlit LED’s were appealing in any arrangement.
With Nanoleaf’s Hexagons and Triangles, the lighting panels are bright enough to replace a traditional light, but that’s not the case with Lines. Lines are more accent lighting and are not bright enough to work as a standard light. However at 100 percent brightness they’re still able to put out a decent amount of light and enjoy the backlit ambience they provide.
Compared to the Shapes, Lines are not the most attractive wall decor when not turned on, but when lit, they’re colourful, futuristic, and fun. I find the Lines to be a great addition to my office/games room, and I think they would compliment any kind of gaming room, PC setup, theatre setup, or TV room. Overall I love everything about them but their high price tag.
