Philips shapes the future of lighting with new innovation concepts


Color Kinetics

Philips Philippines exclusively shared its roster of light Innovation Concepts to the members of the press recently. These futuristic solutions open new possibilities and integrates lighting with creativity to produce innovations that were previously deemed unimaginable.

Currently, lighting solutions from Philips address the need for more energy-efficient lighting in the Philippines. Fabia Tetteroo-Bueno, country manager of Philips Philippines said, “Philips is driving the switch to energy-efficient solutions, and shaping the future with exciting new light applications. Lighting technology can now be seamlessly integrated into novel technologies that deliver in both form and function. Needless to say, it is an exciting time for the company, as it discovers more meaningful innovations that fill the need for inspirational lighting.”

In line with this, Philips introduced six innovation concepts that embody the future of lighting: Flexibility, Controllability, Alternative Energy, Connectivity, Dynamism, and Materials Integration.


The Philips LivingShapes interactive mirror takes full advantage of the unique, flexible characteristics of OLEDs. It is made up of dozens of Lumiblade OLEDs that emit light when it is turned on and appear as mirrors when turned off. Also, Philips LivingSculptures allow designers orchestrate three-dimensional arrays of OLED in open spaces like ceilings and walls—adding a sense of movement to any surface.


The Philips’ Antumbra Panel Series is described as the new benchmark for user control panels. Engineered for high-end residential and hospitality, these switches greet guests by automatically ‘waking up’ with a wall-washing lighting effect.

Alternative Energy

Philips shared a its concept of a solar LED lighting system that store energy from the sun during daytime, that can provide illumination at night. These modules possibly be used in street and road lighting.


Under connectivity, the Philips Hue lets you create and personalize light through an app—letting you pick from a wide spectrum of shades to set the mood and feel of your living space. The Philips Hue can also alert the user of their  schedule, incoming email or can tell if it will rain.


Philips Color Kinetics (CK) lets people appreciate the world’s landmarks with a dynamic mix of colors. These dazzling light installations are currently used in over 34,000 iconic spectacles across 100 countries—including England’s coveted London Eye.

Materials Integration

Philips LED lighting systems can also be integrated with superior sound absorption to enhance room interiors to create the ideal setting for the workplace.

“The Philps Soundlight Comfort Ceiling (SLCC) creates a synergy between light and sound,” claimed Tetterroo-Bueno. “This acoustic light ceiling system combines comfortable LED lighting with sound deadening technology to orchestrate the perfect work space, as it exudes comfort and performance.”

On the other hand, Philips Luminous Textile Panels (LTP) instantly bring drab spaces to life with a rich combination of multi-colored LED modules within acoustic textile panels that soften sound, setting the perfect tone for hallways and meeting areas.
