With working from home and studying by distance becoming the new normal, it’s essential to start thinking about ways to transform your workspace to help you concentrate and get your creative juices flowing. That’s where Nanoleaf’s smart lights come in. With the touch of your palm, you can change the panels to any colour, just like magic.
However, with great power comes Nanoleaf’s hefty price tag. For instance, its Shapes starter kit usually retails for $350. It’s not a purchase you can just splash out on without really having thought about it first.
That’s why whenever we spot a great deal on one of Nanoleaf’s amazing smarter kits, we’re quick to let you know — otherwise, they’ll be gone in a flash.

Nanoleaf’s Canvas and Shapes line are very different to the usual “smart lights” setup. Instead of an LED light bulb or light strip that you can control from your phone or smart home hub, you get a set of triangle, square or hexagon-shaped panels.
They’re easy to rearrange and join with one another to create geometric patterns on your wall. These light panels also respond to external stimuli. Touching them will make the panels flash a different colour, and they can even respond to the music you’re playing.
You still control them via a phone app and program them to display any number of bright and colourful patterns.
If your taste in home decor runs a bit more rustic, you can pick up the Nanoleaf Elements panels for $343, down from $429.99. These panels have a wood grain veneer, which gives these lights a more natural feel. However, the Nanoleaf Elements panels don’t support RGB colours.
In Gizmodo’s review of the triangle Shapes, we noted the therapeutic effect these smart lights have:
My sleep has improved significantly while I’ve been using the Nanoleaf lights, as has my mood. While it’s hard to properly gauge the exact impact in numbers, I’ve noticed I’m much more relaxed using the devices to read before bed. Like being in a warm bath, they’re great for carving out time for yourself and focusing on your mental health.
