When light goes beyond illumination
Philips Lighting has changed the way we experience light for more than a century.
As the world leader in lighting, Philips has long risen to the challenge of bringing better lighting solutions to homes while providing optimum comfort. This is crucial as light can transform bare spaces into environments more conducive for living, and can also breathe life into any sanctuary. Its remarkable adaptability breeds functionality and dynamism.
I personally admire Philips’ wide array of LED offerings for its equally energy-efficient and sophisticatedly smart features.
From ambient and mood lighting, to task and decorative, Philips’ LED bulbs offers lighting solutions that are not only perfect for the modern-day multifunctional homes, but also delivers the most comfortable illumination that is easy on the eyes.
In my chat with Philips Lighting Philippines marketing head Pam-Mallari Valenzuela at their newly-refurbished showroom in Taguig City, she pointed out that “Philips Lighting is the only lighting company that prioritizes the eye comfort benefit of lighting solutions.”
The brand’s backbone commitment of taking light beyond illumination harps on the benefit of Philips LEDs, which produce light that illuminates, but which does not harm the eyes.
Some of my favorites include the Philips SceneSwitch LED range and the timeless Deco Classic bulbs.
SceneSwitch was designed to reflect the many and varied functions of rooms in homes without compromising any extra household budget. With its multiple-light setting feature, it can quickly transform a room from somewhere to work, to somewhere to snuggle.
The range’s plug-and-play feature also enables users to switch lighting without requiring structural changes, installing a dimmer switch or spending a disproportionate amount of money on unnecessary electrical rewiring.
Deco Classic, on the other hand, combines functionality and character when it comes to home lighting. Featuring a classic heritage design, the range fuses the familiar shapes of timeless incandescent bulbs with the benefits of long lasting LED technology—a perfect concoction of optimum functionality and sheer sophistication.
They also come in dimmable and ambient colored versions perfect for both decorative lighting and mood lighting.
Philips Lighting carries on innovating illumination technologies in its pursuit to address the growing needs of the communities for better and more energy-efficient lighting solutions.
In fact, in line with this very mission, Philips recently expressed its intent to change its company name to Signify—to convey the fact that light is an intelligent language, which connects and conveys meaning.
This likewise reflected the brand’s vision to materialize a new corporate look that it can uniquely own in its aim to further unite its stakeholders and service consumers better.
The future of lighting is connected LED managed through smart controls in the Internet of Things. While we have just begun to scratch the surface of how lighting can improve lives and create a better world, early applications are already proving connected digital lighting in our homes to be well positioned as the backbone of the smart city.
Philips Lighting will continue to develop the value of light beyond illumination, helping homes to become smarter and each of us to reimagine our relationship with light.
