San Donato Milanese, April 16, 2018 - Eni gas e luce and Centrica Hive Limited today mark the beginning of their five-year commercial partnership with a significant presence at FuoriSalone to show how smart home technology will improve everyday living and energy efficiency for Italian homeowners. They will offer visitors a new way of experiencing energy, and guide them towards choosing interconnected, innovative and easy to use smart home products to help control home energy usage and boost comfort in their daily life.
Together they present smarTown, an experiential architectural installation that transforms part of the Orto Botanico di Brera into an interactive smart city, designed by young architects from the SOS – School of Sustainability under the supervision of the architect Mario Cucinella. The installation forms part of the “House in Motion” exhibition curated by Interni magazine to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the FuoriSalone Milano show.
Complementing the visionary outlook offered by smarTown, Eni gas e luce opens its inaugural Experience Store in the heart of Milan’s shopping district, Corso Buenos Aires – Via Felice Casati 1/a. Spanning two floors, the store is designed to feel like home, where visitors can relax, work or meet people, and experience what it means to live within a smart home while trying Hive technology first hand.
Hive smart home products will be immediately available to purchase by Italian consumers through the Eni gas e luce e-store, enigaseluce/smarthome.com, and from Eni gas e luce Experience Store that will be open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., from April 16 through July 31 2018.
