About this project

Last year, we created the world's most energy efficient light bulb. This year, we wanted to find a way to allow people to save even more energy. The solution was the Nanoleaf Bloom. By giving people the freedom to dim down their lights in more places, it further reduces energy usage! We hope that this will encourage even more people to adopt energy efficient lighting, and be able to indulge in living efficiently.

A Dimmable Light Bulb, that Doesn’t Need a Dimmer!

No hardware, no apps, just take the Nanoleaf Bloom out of the box, put it into any fixture and start adjusting the brightness using the light switch that’s already there! With our patented technology, we have been able to transform the switching of the light switch into a control signal for our light! With this technology, we have enabled you to dim your lights in light fixtures that were before only able to be 100% on or off.

We believe that the only way to increase adoption of energy efficient technology is to make it more convenient and more innovative than the existing products on the market. We designed the Nanoleaf Bloom to improve the convenience of being able to dim our lights wherever we are regardless of whether a dimmer switch is available.

How to Use the Nanoleaf Bloom

Features

Dimmable in any ON/OFF light fixture or lamp. No dimmer switch necessary.
The customized embedded microprocessor inside of the Nanoleaf Bloom enables the user to adjust the brightness using a simple ON/OFF light switch.

Still the world's most energy efficient light bulb. Operating at 120 lumens/watt, this bulb is the most energy efficient light bulb on the market. Achieving a max brightness of 1200 lumens (75 watt equivalent) using only 10 watts of electricity!

Omnidirectional lighting. The Nanoleaf Bloom emulates the classic light bulb and directs light in all directions. This allows for light to be distributed evenly, and provide the ultimate lighting experience.

The most comfortable experience for your eyes. The Nanoleaf Bloom is designed to takes three seconds to ramp up to full brightness, which is just enough time for your retina to adjust to the brightness.

Safe for use in enclosed fixtures!
Most LED light bulbs or CFL’s have a problem of overheating within a fully enclosed fixture, which causes the LEDs to start failing well before their expected lifetime. The reason for this is that these fixtures do not allow for sufficient airflow, thus trapping the heat inside and overheating the bulbs. The Nanoleaf Bloom emits less than half the heat energy as compared to other LED bulbs or CFLs. The chance of overheating is far lessened. We have added overheat protection as a standard feature in every bulb. If the bulb gets too hot for whatever reason, it will automatically dim itself to prevent damage or shortened life.

How Will the Nanoleaf Bloom Benefit You?

Be the first to get a Nanoleaf Bloom and start saving today! Within its lifetime, the Nanoleaf Bloom will more than pay for itself, significantly cut electricity bills, and save CO2 emissions all while providing beautiful lighting for all your needs. In fact, the more you dim, the more you save!

At 100% brightness (10W), the bulb consumes $1.53 of electricity per year. That's energy efficiency! At 50% brightness (2.5W), it costs $0.38/year in electricity, uses only 25% of the full power! At 5% brightness or Night Mode (0.5W), electricity costs only $0.07/year, barely any carbon footprint at all!

Our Story

We are a team dedicated to creating innovative and energy efficient green technology. Our goal is to continue to create innovative energy efficient products that promote a more sustainable lifestyle, so that we can create a better world through conservation and to preserve the planet that we love. 

Last year, we, the tree-hugging engineers, introduced to the world the Nanoleaf One bulb (formerly known as the NanoLight) - the world’s most energy efficient light bulb. Our project was successfully funded by over 5000 backers who believed in our dream for a greener and better world, and together we made quite the impact.

This year, we have pushed the boundaries of innovation once again to bring the world an even more efficient way to light up our lives - the Nanoleaf Bloom. While there are many more innovations in the works, this is our second finished product ready to further cut down on those high energy bills and carbon emissions. We are more ready than ever to further reduce energy usage on a global scale. 

Join us, and let’s take care of our planet together!

Risks and challenges

With any project, there are always unexpected hiccups. However, we will mitigating these risks through careful planning!

Some of the lessons learned from our previous Kickstarter project:

Quality assurance
There is nothing more important than ensuring that our product is of high quality. We have learned this the hard way with our previous KS project. We now have a Quality Assurance expert within our team to help us design a better quality control process to ensure the highest quality during mass production.

Shipping
With international shipping, there is always a risk of rejected items at customs or returned packages, this became apparent to us during our last Kickstarter project. To mitigate this risk, we have decided to place more money into shipping and upgraded to a world class courier service that will improve our world-wide delivery service and provide a much better experience for our backers.

Data management
We built our data exporting program last Kickstarter, but did not catch a bug early on that caused some delivery issues. Since then, that program has been tremendously improved and perfected. We are now ready with our well-oiled database system to keep all of our backer pledges and information with top accuracy.
