Nanoleaf Launches Limited Edition Ultra Black Light Panels

Nanoleaf Launches Limited Edition Ultra Black Light Panels

Nanoleaf, known for its unique HomeKit-enabled lighting panels, today announced the launch of new limited-edition Ultra Black Triangles shapes. The new Ultra Black panels debut to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Nanoleaf, or “Nanoversary”.


Lighting panels available in black were a frequent customer request that Nanoleaf decided to deliver for its anniversary. The Ultra Black Triangles Shapes have a 360-degree black finish that’s quite different from Nanoleaf’s previous white plastic panels that some have criticized for the design when not activated.

We got to take a look at the Shapes Ultra Black Triangles ahead of launch, and the design should appease those who’ve always hoped for a darker, less austere color. Nanoleaf’s standard white panels when turned off may look odd on the wall due to the white plastic design, but the black panels look more natural when turned off.

The panels look more like a decorative piece when not in use, and the black finish in no way detracts from the bright colors available when the lights are on. Dark panels tend to pick up fingerprints, so Nanoleaf has included a microfiber cloth. If you use the touch-enabled features, expect to have to clean them occasionally as fingerprints are visible when the panels are off.

Aside from the color, the Nanoleaf Shapes Ultra Black Triangles are identical to the standard Shapes Triangles, with no noticeable design changes, so expect the same rounded corners. The panels also include all of the same features, including access to the Nanoleaf app, HomeKit connectivity, and interoperability with mini triangles and hexagons.

The Shapes Ultra Black Triangles come with black mounting plates, power supply and controller for a clean look. Mounting plates have been added with the Shapes line, and they make it much easier to remove the panels from the wall without damaging the adhesive, as it is easier to access the adhesive tabs.

As the panels feature the same design as the standard triangles, it should be noted that there is some light leakage around the corners and with some colors the corners may appear a bit brighter than the rest of the panel. It’s not super noticeable in everyday use, but it may bother some people.

Dark colors look great with darker panels, with dark blues, purples and rich greens pairing well with the black color. The black panels offer a very different aesthetic with lighting patterns that turn the panels on and off because you get a black triangle thrown into the mix, and it’s a sleeker look than what you get with the white panels.

There are thousands of pre-created community light scenes to choose from in the Nanoleaf app, as well as in-app options, and you can create all kinds of light scenes yourself with different colors and light patterns. . Schedules and automations are available, and panels can be linked to other ‌HomeKit‌ devices and controlled with Siri commands.

Other features available include Screen Mirroring to match your screen content and Rhythm Music Visualizer to match the rhythm of the color change to the music playing. If you’re familiar with previous Nanoleaf lighting panels, these are the same, just in a new and improved color option. If you want to know more about the feature set available, we have a full review available on the Shapes line.

Shapes Ultra Black Light panels can be had for $220 starting today and are available in a limited edition. The base kit includes nine panels, and three more can be purchased in an expansion pack for $70.
