Smart home automation is a fairly new and developing industry with experts saying that it may take years to make the entire process seamless. With countless of tech companies producing single-purpose gadgets, it is very easy for us to find ourselves with a constellation of flashing LEDs that keep us up at night.
This problem is inspiring technologists and designers to focus their talents on producing to what industrial designer Benjamin Hubert “flexi-tech” and multi-functional products that integrate seamlessly and discreetly into our interiors.
Mr Hubert is the designer of the Rise lamp; the first product to be released in Nolii’s debut collectido of wireless tech products. It is multi-functional; it works as a lamp, phone charger and alarm clock.
Like the Rise Lamp, the newly redesigned Nest Thermostat E has also been designed to blend into existing interiors.
Lionel Guicherd-Callin, global head of energy product and services, of the first Nest thermostat, said: ‘In 2011, we reinvented the thermostat category to make it easy for people to save energy. Fast forward seven years: Nest owners have globally saved more than 25 billion kWh – and now we are bringing beautiful design and proven energy saving capabilities into even more homes. To do that, we needed to simplify. The more subtle look and feel of the Nest Thermostat E will seamlessly blend into any environment.’
