Last week Pier 94 in New York City was home to the Architectural Digest Home Design Show 2015. From large international brands to small artisan craftsmen, the show offered a wealth of design inspiration. As always, there were returning favorites to see and new exhibitors to discover. The AHT Global booth once again shined by showcasing an assortment of unique residential technologies.
Crestron’s latest invention is Crestron Pyng, a home automation app that simplifies the installation process of any home automation system. AHT Global provided a demo of the system that featured motorized shades, lighting, HVAC and door locks. The demo gave attendees a clear understanding of how easy Pyng is to operate.
Mosaic Video Wall & Merdian-Audio
The Mosaic Video Wall was the centerpiece to the AHT booth and attracted the most attention. With it’s unique configuration and exceptional clarity. it stopped attendees in their tracks to ask questions about the one of a kind video wall system. To top it off, Blackdove, the Miami based start-up, provided unique video art content by utilizing their app during the four day show.
A pair of Meridian 8000 and 5200 speakers along with a Control 15 media player provided the audio entertainment during the show. Whenever the AHT team had a chance to spike the volume, attendees and exhibitors were enjoying the crisp sounds.

The Lighting design board gave an overview of a lighting diagram and sample images.
Seura Mirror Televisions & TRUFIG
Like last year’s show, AHT showcased two of the more desirable hidden design technologies in Seura and TRUFIG. Seura is known for their USA manufactured mirror televisions and waterproof displays. When a display needs to be hidden their are two main options: a lift or a mirror television. Mirror televisions have dual functionality while also being much easier to install. The other hidden technology on display was TRUFIG. TRUFIG mounts AC outlets, touchscreens, HVAC outlets and other devices so that they are flush on a wall.
