Basalte is the number one KNX manufacturer in Europe. KNX is a European control standard and is on the rise throughout Asia. Basalte also happens to manufacture the world’s most beautiful iPad wall docks, but one might wonder why an American company would partner with a European company.

The short answer is that Fulkra has its eyes on the far horizon. The long answer is thatFulkra was called upon by a client tospecify Basalte switches in a project. With a mandate, we set out to learn more about Basalte and KNX. Despite the lack of KNX support in the United States, Fulkra found a way to integrate Basalte switches into the mega-million-dollar modern manse in Beverly Hills.

We didn’t stop there. We have developed a personal relationship with Basalte and its founder, Klaas Arnout. Klaas personally flew out to check-in on the Beverly Hills project, and Fulkra system designer, Martin Seelos, flew out to Belgium to tour Basalte’s facility and learn more about KNX.
