Recap: Non-profit Project With Ate Atema

We recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Ate on a project for a unique non-profit organization in Chelsea. His work is absolutely inspiring and it was a pleasure having him stop by to discuss the project. Some of our favorite features from the project included the Savant app, Extron meeting scheduler, Sonance speakers and amplifiers. Worth a look…

Our 2019 Lighting Summit

We had a great turn out for the 2019 Lighting Summit at the Savant Experience Center! We’d like to thank the Architects and design professionals who attended throughout the day. Many of the attendees were able to earn up to five AIA learning units, mingle with their peers in between sessions, and enjoy the amazing food provided by Krisp Events. We would also like to thank the presenters from Savant, Lutron, LumaStream, USAI Lighting, and Ketra whose courses received tons of positive feedback. We hope to see some familiar faces at next year’s Summit!

Review: The Formation Series

Last week we got our hands on the brand new Bowers & Wilkins Formation Series, and have not been this thrilled over innovation in the audio space for a long time…

The first real competitor to the Sonos platform, The Bowers & Wilkins Formation Series wins in some key areas:

Detail

The material sciences behind Bowers & Wilkins’ noise reduction, combined with a higher fidelity streaming rate and superior digital-to-analog conversion, create the cleanest and clearest sound we’ve ever heard in a wireless speaker.

Communication

With more antennas and Bowers & Wilkins’ own proprietary mesh network, the delay between speakers is down to an indistinguishable one microsecond. Stereo imaging sounds flawlessly accurate, while multiple rooms can be linked without feeling that one room is slightly behind the other (a common complaint with Sonos.)

Aesthetics

The Formation Duo and Bass look and feel like pieces of fine furniture on display. The shape and patterns in the Bar and Wedge make them stand out boldly. These speakers are recognizably Bowers & Wilkins, but the design swings they took here give a very unique, ultra-modern aesthetic.
