Innr is a groundbreaking new approach to interior decorating, using the magical power of light.
Innr changes the way you experience lighting. Most of us still consider lighting in our home as a collection of lamps that produce light. But a collection of lamps doesn’t necessarily create good lighting. Innr isn’t about lamps. It’s about great lighting, for every moment and every activity in your home.
- Ever wondered how all those glossy interior design magazines manage to showcase these beautiful homes with the lighting just right?
- Ever been put off by the price of a professional lighting plan?
At Innr we believe every home deserves great lighting at every moment of the day. It’s why we’re here: to make great lighting accessible to everyone. Outside you’ve got the sun, inside you’ve got Innr.
How does it work ?
Step 1. The online Light Advisor
At Innr.com we'll create a personal online lighting plan for you, tailored to your home:
- Simply start by sketching the dimensions of your room
- Indicate where the room’s fixed features are, such as doors and windows.
- Add your furniture and any beautiful belongings you’d like to accentuate.
- Press enter…
and you have your personalised lighting plan. As well as all the products you need to make it happen, ready to be delivered to your home.
Step 2. Installation
Once your order has arrived you’re ready for step two. Installation is quick and easy with the personalised lighting plan of your room and the contents of your order: state-of-the-art Innr LED spots, easy-to-install strips and bulbs, an internet bridge, and everything else needed to achieve the transformation of your room.
Step 3. The Innr experience
With the installation complete, you’re ready for the final step. After logging into your Innr account via the app on your smart device, you’ll be shown tailor-made settings for different moods and activities, based on the personal lighting plan created for your room.
With a single screen tap you can adjust the lighting to fit your current mood or activity. For dining, relaxing, having friends round, working from home or doing homework with the kids. Innr provides great lighting for everything you do, including when you’re doing nothing much and just want to relax.
Other Innr benefits
Where do we stand ?
What started with a vision to empower people to be able to create better lighting at home, has now materialized into fully functional software and prototypes that are ready for mass production.
The online lighting advisor has undergone numerous iterations and reviews with consumers and lighting designers to make sure that the interface is simple and the advice is top notch. We’re happy with the results so we plan to release a beta version next month.
We've built many prototypes of the lighting products so we can be sure they deliver the lighting quality and ease of installation we promise. The designs have been finalized and the first tools have been ordered. We've been really fortunate to be able to work with an international team of outstanding design partners and suppliers who have thought with us every step of the way, using their experience gained from working for leading lighting and electronics brands.
What's next ?
In four months' time we expect to deliver the first orders. While we continue to tweak the software, the biggest step now is to order tooling, start production and go through certification so that we can start shipping. Meanwhile we are working on brand development, marketing positioning, packaging, and all the other of other major details that are needed to bring Innr to life.
November: Tool making, pilot production & certification. Beta version light advisor live
December: Start production. light advisor refinements
January: First shipments from supplier. Light advisor version 1.0 live
February: Start fulfillment Kickstarter rewards
March: All Kickstarter rewards delivered

Risks and challenges
There are always plenty of pitfalls and hurdles to overcome when truly innovating. Innr, with its technical complexity, has been no exception. The good news is that some of the biggest risks on our journey in creating Innr now lie behind us.
We've had to develop software that can provide sound lighting advice and the results we believe in. We also wanted to develop top quality led products that are smaller than anything available on the market. To top it all, we wanted to develop a reliable wireless control system that could be programmed through the lighting advisor. We're proud to say we managed to achieve all of our objectives. Innr has been created thanks to a great team with the right experience and ambition and first-class suppliers who are ready to get going with manufacturing Innr for us.
In the next phase the main risks are in production delays, release test hiccups and software bugs. For the most typical risks, we have identified ways to minimize them and to resolve them if they should crop up. Nevertheless, you can never eliminate sheer bad luck. So we’ve allowed for some slack in the production planning, if only to reinforce in our own belief that we’ll be able to deliver on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
