With HYDE, Depro Profiles takes a whole new direction. This first product in the new line KOVR® takes the existing wall- and ceiling solutions to a higher level. By questioning the concept of traditional light fixtures, a new integrated solution was come up with: high-end panelling with a fully integrated lighting system. HYDE combines architectural elements and lighting in an invisible way, making light seem to appear out of nowhere. The LED-technology is fully integrated into the panelling; due to the controllable light intensity HYDE can tune in to every mood. The unique user experience is completed by a remote control and mobile application. HYDE is architectural lighting in its purest form.
