Turn

The face of timeless smart-home control

Reimagining exclusive smart-home control

Adding touch to the digital world.
Ideaworks envisioned a distinctive real-world device that would control their smart-home software, designed to feel at home and fit beautifully into the homes, yachts and lives of their discerning clientele.

So we created an aspirational object that would have the reassuring, weighty feel and smooth mechanical interaction of a superlative timepiece. A synergic connection between the digital and analogue worlds.

Unique Approach

A timeless device for future-facing software

Visual ergonomics inspired an analogue experience and a refined digital response
Inspired by the intricacy and craftsmanship of Swiss watches, Turn’s balanced mechanics work in absolute harmony with its smart technology to add theatre to everyday smart-home interactions.

A satisfying twist to create the perfect environment for entertaining. Dim the lights. Shut the blinds. Increase the temperature.

Presented in aircraft-grade aluminium and hardened glass, Turn delivers the ultimate interactive smart-home experience, elevating every space with elegance and finesse.
