Kinestral Technologies

OverviewSuggest Edit

Today at Kinestral, we’re transforming glass into responsive, intelligent, beautiful architectural elements that transition from clear to tinted to dark, automatically or on command. We’re transforming architecture and design by offering a much more versatile architectural element for windows, skylights and walls. We’re transforming buildings, homes – and eventually cities – to be more sustainable, efficient, and beautiful. Most importantly, we like to think that we’re transforming lives by giving people unprecedented comfort and control of their indoor environments and more connection with the outside world, while creating inspiring spaces for living and working.
