March 14, 2014

Singapore – Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) was recognized tonight with five accolades at the first Singapore Good Design Mark Awards in a ceremony which was part of Singapore Design Week. The awarded SG Mark serves as a symbol of design excellence to encourage and champion holistic design practices for global competitiveness. Philips was one of the most-awarded organisations of the night.

 

Philips hue, the world’s leading personal wireless lighting system, won the Platinum SG Mark. It was the only lighting product awarded in the Platinum category. Four Philips Consumer Lifestyle products were recognized with Standard SG Mark awards – the Philips PerfectCare Pure Steam Iron, the Philips Avance Airfryer XL, the Philips VisaPure and the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean.

 

"We are proud to have been recognized in these inaugural Singapore Good Design Mark awards with our globally created products, in particular those coming from the design team here in Singapore," said Low Cheaw Hwei, Head of Product and Service Design at Philips. "It is a confirmation of how we bring world-class design together with leading technologies and our understanding of socio-cultural trends to deliver innovation that matters to people."

 

 Philips hue is the world’s smartest web-enabled LED home lighting system that is controllable using your smartphone or tablet. The intuitive app allows users to remotely control and personalise their home lighting experience with custom settings and program timers to fit daily schedules, all through the convenience of a smart device.

 

 Stylist and efficient, the Philips PerfectCare Pure Steam Iron GC7635 makes ironing simpler by utilising the OptimalTemp technology to create one perfect setting for all types of clothes.

 

 The Philips Avance Airfryer XL HD9240 produces food with up to 80 percent less fat with its Rapid Air Technology. It even offers a variety of cooking methods - fry, grill, roast, gratinate, and bake! The Philips Avance XL Airfryer HD9240 has a 30 percent increase in power, and can fit a whole chicken with its larger capacity.

 

 The Philips VisaPure SC5275 is proven to cleanse skin up to 10 times more effectively than hand-cleansing. With Dual motion Technology, it rotates and pulsates to sweep impurities from deep within skin away.

 

 The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean HX9352 harnesses Sonicare’s patented sonic technology to gently remove up to 100% more plaque than a manual toothbrush from in-between and behind teeth and along the gum line where plaque bacteria flourish.
