Philips unveils new portfolio of products
New LED solutions introduced at Light + Build
Royal Philips Electronics has broadened its portfolio of LED-based lighting solutions.
As with a number of other leading lighting companies, Philips is using Light + Build, the lighting and architecture fair currently underway in Frankfurt, to reiterate its commitment to energy-saving solutions for commercial and consumer applications.
New additions to the portfolio include a breakthrough 12 watt LED lamp that acts as a substitute for a 60 watt light bulb; LivingAmbiance, a new approach to mood creation that wirelessly integrates multiple luminaires and lamps into system; The Lirio by Philips, Arcitone and Ledino collections of distinctive, high-design consumer luminaires; new LED street lighting; and LED luminaire and control solutions for offices and shops.
“Philips recognises and understands the fundamental changes taking place in the world today,” said Rudy Provoost, CEO of Philips Lighting. “Lifestyles are changing, urbanisation is presenting new challenges for city leaders, and society in general is more environmentally aware. We are applying the functional and creative potential of LED lighting to address these trends, and to simply enhance life with light.”
With its new products, Philips is addressing the needs of a range of market segments. A revolutionary concept for the home, LivingAmbiance enables a room to adapt to any mood or occasion, integrating multiple luminaires and lamps wirelessly to generate verious types of ambient lighting.
LivingAmbience also incorporates Philips’ latest generation of LivingColors, the acclaimed range of consumer luminaires which enable thousands of colours to be selected at the touch of a button.
Also created for the home environment are the three new product families, Lirio by Philips, Arcitone and Ledino, which offer the design flexibility of LED lighting with bold new forms, materials and finishes.
Philips is also hoping to drive the uptake of LED in outdoor urban spaces, with the hope of helping cities improve road and pedestrian safety, reduce night-time light disturbance and make significant energy savings.
During 2010, Philips will introduce a range of outdoor luminaires, CitySoul, CitySpirit, MileWide and StreetStar, all built around Ledgine, a future-proofed and fully upgradable platform for outdoor luminaires.
