With the set of lamps NOX, brighten up the lives of your loved ones takes a new dimension.


More than a lamp, it's a new way of communication

Did you ever came back home, alone in a dark living room and wished to have your family or beloved one with you ? Whether you live in the same city, or across the globe, that is what NOX does. It lets you brighten up your beloved one's home with your presence, even when you are apart.

A set of connected lamps to brighten two homes & feel closer

The lamps simulate your presence in the other's home, thanks to sensors, mechanisms, and light variations.


Far but closer

Across the globe, the light brings you closer to your loved one, and allow you to communicate passively and metaphorically.


The lamps are connected through WIFI and communicate instantaneously when you move.

LED Variations

The closer you get to the lamp, the brighter the other will shine, and its color will also change to brighten up the mood.

Rotation and Torsion

The more you move, the more the sensors will transpose it into rotative mechanisms in the other lamp, like a beating heart.

Connect the lamps and let them brighten up your nights.

Just connect your lamp to your WIFI in a few simple clicks on the configuration page. When they are both connected, they will shine in a warmer color to let you know when your beloved one's lamp is turned on, and ready to brighten up your homes! Check out the video to discover it !
