BEST sound INNOVATION - winner: LUMISONIC BY ZUMA
Zuma has found a cableless way to deliver great sound… downlights delivering lighting control and whole-home audio. It's a perfect example of tech answering a problem we didn't know we had - where to hide those speakers, while also not adding yet another 'thing' to the home.
‘It’s a good example of thinking outside the box,’ says Sarah Spiteri.
