April 19, 2012 // Christoph Hammerschmidt
Philips presented a range of lighting innovations for professionals and consumers at the world's leading lighting and architecture fair, Light + Building 2012. The company also pointed out that LED and OLED technology plays a central role for the company's lighting strategy.
LED Lighting plays a unique role in creating meaningful experiences for people and delivers significant energy savings, said Frans van Houten, Chief Executive Officer of Philips. We present a broad array of LED lighting solutions designed to create inspiring ambiences both in buildings and outdoors while reducing energy consumption and operational costs.
At Light + Building 2012, Philips presented LED solutions and controls that offer efficient and flexible lighting for streets, buildings and shops. These solutions enable substantial energy savings while making streets safer and buildings more comfortable, and creating more attractive shopper experiences to drive sales.
The new range of LED bulbs are designed to emit warm white light similar to traditional lamps, with dramatic energy savings (up to 90% less energy consumption) and a lifespan of up to 25 years. Also recognizing that people have varied preferences in light tone, Philips has developed the DimTone feature that allows light to be adjusted simultaneously in intensity and color, from bright to warm light, to create the ambience of choice by means of a dimmer.
Philips has been recognized for innovation in lighting design, winning nine iF Product Design awards in 2012 for its consumer luminaires. At Light + Building 2012, the company presented its latest line-up of LED design luminaires for the home.
New technologies such as OLED are re-defining lighting design, with their thin form and diffused light quality. Philips demonstrates both its design expertise and technological mastery, presenting breathtaking OLED installations and solutions at the show.
