A journey beyond the ordinary, where design and friendship intertwined in an unforgettable embrace, turning each moment into a profoundly meaningful and inspiring experience. 

A Global Union of Friendship and Collaboration 

In the bustling heart of Milan, the world came together in a warm and universal embrace. Beyond borders and linguistic barriers, a part of our Italian team, comprised of Filippo Salbini, Francesco Ferrara, Roberta Apuleo, and Alfonso Mellone, welcomed, gathered, and guided over 20 friends from every corner of the globe under the banner of friendship.

Lighting is essential to create the right atmosphere in every room of the house. With the use of technology there are so many ways to light up your home intelligently.

Using technology for home lighting offers many benefits, including a more comfortable, safe and efficient experience.

In this video we talked about it with the Lighting Designer Filippo Cannata, who explained the importance of using technology for home lighting.

Home lighting technology

Technology has revolutionized the way we manage lighting in the home, providing numerous opportunities to improve energy efficiency and comfort.

Thanks to the use of LED lamps, motion sensors and remote control systems, it is possible to create the perfect atmosphere in any room.

Energy saving

The use of home lighting technology generates great energy savings. LED lamps consume much less energy than traditional light bulbs. Additionally, smart lighting systems can be programmed to automatically turn off the lights when there are no people in a room, further reducing energy consumption.

Remote control

Another great advantage of using technology for home lighting is the ability to control the lights remotely.

For example, smart lighting systems allow you to control the lighting using a mobile application or voice assistant. With a simple touch you can turn on, adjust or turn off the lights in any room. This is especially useful when you’re away from home.

Personalization and importance of a well-lit environment

Home lighting is an important aspect of home comfort, influencing people’s mood, productivity and health.

With smart lighting systems you can customize the lighting of every room in your home according to your preferences. For example, you can choose between different color temperatures to create the right atmosphere at any time of day or according to the activity you are doing, such as reading, watching TV or relaxing. Plus, you can program the lights to turn on gradually in the morning, simulating the natural sunrise, to help you wake up naturally.

Safety

Using home lighting technology can increase the safety of your home. You can schedule lighting systems to turn on and off at regular intervals, giving the impression that someone is always home and reducing the risk of theft or break-ins. Additionally, some smart lighting systems can be integrated with security systems to automatically turn on lights when motion is detected on your property.

Benefits for you

Ultimately, using technology for home lighting offers many benefits, from saving energy to customizing the lighting to your preferences. Additionally, smart lighting systems can increase the safety of your home.

If you are looking for a way to improve the lighting in your home, the Cannata/Salbini partnership offers our customers the possibility of essentially relying on a “genius” who takes care of every detail of the lighting project.

In this video interview we talked about it with the Lighting Designer Filippo Cannata, who has been collaborating for over thirty years in the realization of residential, commercial, urban and hospitality projects in various countries.

Cannata explains how the lighting project also begins with the architectural project.

In fact, light is a fundamental element of architecture and interior design, which is why it must be designed when the idea for the project is born.

Light becomes the language through which architecture and interior design are expressed, to which the client’s identity is added”.
