From its ergonomic interface and sleek, elegant design, to its revolutionary connected functionality – Living Now by Bticino is a master-class in innovative product design. It combines aesthetic, user-experience and technological evolution to turn the humble switch into a true control interface.  And, it’s now available in New Zealand.

“We are convinced that, to make a difference in a competitive sector like ours, one must concentrate on innovation and enrich the value of the electrical system, offering the user added value in terms of functionality, information and interaction. With this new solution, Living Now confirms that it represents for the world of electrical infrastructures the same revolution as the smartphone has represented for telecommunications” – Franco Villani, BTicino Managing Director.

Innovative, sustainable design

With its clean lines and distinctive shape, Living Now is instantly recognisable. Each device features an aesthetic cover which is available in two colours: white and black, each featuring a luxurious satin finish. The Living Now cover plate range includes 12 finishes, made from a range of designer materials including techno polymer metal and wood.

The zamak and wood finishes are obtained using sustainable production procedures. Each cover plate is unique and features distinguishable features making them one-of-a-kind.

Living Now frames can move freely on the four corners, guaranteeing that it is attached to the body in a simple and always optimum way, giving an appearance of a floating frame. The light can be switched on or off by pressing any point on the surface. The patented self centering system allows the control covers to always remain aligned to the other light point components even after many operations. After being pressed, the keys return to their original position, perfectly in sync.
