The Application Context
In via Rutilia 10 - in the heart of Milan's new smart district - the R10 area was inaugurated: an innovative shared showroom of 600 square metres furnished like a real home, where different companies from the world of furnishing display their materials and products. A special place where design becomes a synergy between various prestigious companies.
R10 - Design Sharing Space is used for temporary events, exhibitions and showrooms so the demand in terms of automation and control was mainly that of system efficiency and ease of use. The space is independently controlled: when opened, the system turns on the lights and background music; vice versa, at the end of the day, it switches on the alarm system and turns off the lights and music. The lighting scenarios, which vary according to the events proposed, can be easily recalled by means of icon on a PC or smartphone. A sophisticated anti-theft system together with the fire detection system protects the entire structure and the products on display.
The ekinex products and devices have been chosen for this project thanks to their minimalist design and to the wide range of technical functions that allow to automate the regulation of temperature, lighting and music with the possibility to define pre-set scenarios on the specific needs of the showroom.
