1. Velo Panels
Ken Soriano is an Architecture student from the Technological University of the Philippines. While he was planning his room renovation, he wanted to have “nanoleaf” lights, which are an RGB light wall decoration. But buying one was out of his budget, so he decided to make his own. He was pleased with his own creation, and decided to post it online.
This was the beginning of Velo Panels, which offers one-of-a-kind and personalized light panels, which can be controlled with a phone that has different lighting styles. Velo Panels is a high-quality, low-cost light panel that may be used to adorn spaces and increase productivity by combining neon-themed art to create the perfect ambiance.
