First impressions of the iot in Style by HKT Premier showroom mean more than one probably thinks. At first glance, HKT’s first-ever IoT showroom is simply an alluring space – an artful composition of furnishings, home electronics and fixtures from some of the world’s most creative and highly regarded brands.
But the clue to this showroom’s uniqueness is in its name: ‘IoT’ stands for ‘Internet of Things’ – and for the array of cutting-edge technologies that lie beneath its designer-honed surface.
In essence, what the Internet of Things does is adjust your space to your preferences and needs, with little or no intervention on your part. It achieves this by using a fiber network to ‘pull together’ everything from window shades, lighting, heating, air conditioning and ventilation, to kitchen appliances, security and entertainment systems into an integrated, automated system. Rather than functioning individually, the devices can now work together, both sensing and reacting to your needs, and controlled from a single tablet – or even by voice command.
An intelligent home can even seamlessly connect your home office to your workplace and provide charging for your zero-emissions car. In other words, the intelligent home allows you to effortlessly enjoy your home as a home – a place to relax, work and live on your own terms.
The iot in Style by HKT Premier showroom was designed not just to display the latest Internet of Things devices, but to give a first-hand impression of how they connect together in a pair of inspiring designer-created settings. The showcases will change frequently, with new designer collaborations demonstrating different blends of creativity, aesthetics, function and technology.
The previous showcase by Antony Chan – ‘Rethink Home’ centered the potential of fusing the latest home entertainment tech with fresh contemporary design. The second installation by Roche Bobois design team and Sacha Lakic, delivered a dynamic and distinctive living room.
As well as providing designers and end-users alike with intelligent home inspiration, the showroom also demonstrates the abilities of HKT Premier. This specialist team acts as the essential link between designer and client, providing the technical expertise to fulfill the needs of the latter without compromising the vision of the former. The result can be a home that is even more ‘human-centric’ and comfortable than a traditional interior.
In coming months the store will showcase more collaborations with highly regarded designers and architects such as Florence Kong of FAB-A-MATTER. The new installation will offer creative new thematic ideas as well as the latest intelligent home technologies – including how the Internet of Things can integrate ‘mindful fitness’ and home office functions.
For designers and clients alike, iot in Style by HKT Premier’s unique, seamless blend of aesthetic excellence and technology-enabled functionality is a rich trove of ideas and inspiration. Above all, it demonstrates that the Internet of Things is ready to come home.
