Nanoleaf is the brand behind the Shapes and Canvas smart light panel, but the newest member of its modular smart lights is behaving a little differently by going straight and narrow down.
Instead of the Nanoleaf’s usual light-up panels, the brand new Nanoleaf lines are flat, sleek sticks that use backlighting for an accent lighting appeal with a gamer aesthetic.
Like Nanoleaf Shapes and Canvas Panel, the lines join together, though this time they’re joined at a 60-degree angle on a hexagonal connector, which lends itself to slim geometric designs rather than bold blocks of color.
Given that the lines are thin and light, you’ll also be able to install them on the ceiling using mounting plates.
The company also says that these bars have “dual color zones,” so we expect the backlit lighting to be bled together using some of the 16 million color options the Nanoleaf offers.

Nanoleaf undoubtedly wants to captivate gamers with the launch of Lines – the sticks come with 19 preset ‘scenes’ out of the box, some of which are called ‘PlayStation Chill’ and ‘Fortnite Storm’. And they also work with Nanoleaf’s ‘Screen Mirror’ feature.
Screen mirroring isn’t new to Nanoleaf, as it’s available on Shapes and recently rolled out to Essentials Lightstrip as well. The technology allows your lights to sync up with what’s being shown on the screen, whether you’re watching a movie or gaming on a computer.
We don’t have prices for the new Nanoleaf lines in the UK and US yet, but we do know they will be available for pre-order in Australia starting October 15th, with prices starting at AU$349.99 (about $259 / £189). ) for the 9-pack starter kit.
