Legrand reveals Flocoon: one possible future of home automation
By Anthony Capkun
June 15, 2014 – At the 5th edition of Futur en Seine, Legrand presented a family of conceptual products that create “a new relationship between home controls and end users, and offers a simple and intuitive experience through gentle gestures”.
The Flocoon family of home controls boast a fluid design, suggesting the user to interact with natural gestures. The controls offer simple basic functionalities that can be enhanced through the use of a smartphone or tablet. Each product—which can be placed on the wall, furniture, in wet spaces—has a specific shape related to its functionality: Pad, where a gentle tap activates control; Up-Down dimmer; Warm-Me thermostat that you can blow upon to cool down your area; Sky-View “mood enhancer”; Master Tree where, at the root, lay the master switch that can turn all controls On/Off.
