Next level illumination: The LED teak deck by Octoport GmbH

Last week I met Arun Maheswaran, the innovation-driven founder of the Octoport GmbH. I had a great talk in his office in Bremen, Germany, to see the demo products live.

The company offers custom deck furniture made of carbon fiber and other products and services for the yachting industry. But the most exciting product is a teak deck with LED lighting. An impressive product for yacht owners and yacht designers to play with light design.

If you would like to test it before let install it on your next yacht or refit, the company also equips tenders or emergency exists.

Alongside white lighting, there are also other colors available, including disco/club mode to surprise your guests with a blinking floor – controllable via a smart device app.

At the first appearance, I didn’t saw the LED stripes. It looks like dark teak calks and meets the most chosen color scheme for the calks. The RGBW-LED has energy class A+ and needs a minimum teak thickness of 22mm.
