March 3, 2011

Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Philips is proud to announce that their StyliD LED spot has been awarded the prestigious gold iF product design award. According to the iF jury report: “With the StyliD LED luminaire range Philips realized the first truly variable LED solution that meets the requirements of having both optimal light quality and energy efficiency. The simple, good quality of StyliD is beautiful and groundbreaking for retail lighting.”


The StyliD range offers lighting quality and flexibility which can give retailers a competive advantage. As part of the next generation of LED retail lighting, the StyliD produces sparkling warm light which creates an appealing atmosphere inside a store. Because of its high color rendering, the lighting helps merchandise to stand out. Its flexibility allows retailers to create and customize a lighting style that fit their brand. And its efficient design helps to lower the cost in both maintenance and energy use in comparison with traditional lighting. The StyliD range offers a large choice of varities in size and color.

Rogier van der Heide, Philips Chief Design Officer for Lighting, comments on the award: “The real excitement in the design might not be the most visible for customers, we created the fixture entirely with the retailer in mind. For example, the fixture casing can easily change colour simply by applying a different skin. Also the size, light output and functionality can be chosen to suit the shop owner’s demands. Together with the advanced LED technology inside, this makes StyliD a long term solution for retailers that provides more possibilities to express their brand.”
