    Design, print, repeat: Signify brings service to 3D print luminaires to Indonesia

     

    • Flexibility in design to cater to consumer creative-senses and bring their ideas to life within a short time.
    • Uses recyclable materials, Signify underscores its commitment to doubling its circular revenues to 32% in 2025.
    • Serves both consumers and professional customers in Indonesia.

     

    Jakarta, Indonesia  – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, introduces its 3D printing service for luminaires in Indonesia. This service allows consumers to tailor and order their luminaire, have it 3D-printed from recyclable material and with a fast delivery. Indonesia is the third country outside Europe, after the US and India, where Signify is launching the service. The 3D print facility, which will also serve the Asia-Pacific region, has been set up outside Jakarta and will soon be officiated.

     

    “As a company with a strong presence in Indonesia, we want to continue serving our customers with the latest innovations,” said Rami Hajjar, Country Leader Signify Indonesia. “Setting up the 3D print facility here is a part of this, while also showing our commitment to support the circular economy for better sustainability in Indonesia.”

    Making the economy more circular has become more important than ever. Today people use 1.6 times the resources this planet can sustain, and resource scarcity and waste have reached worrying proportions. Signify’s investment in 3D printing further illustrates its commitment to responsible consumption and production (SDG12) with products that can be reprinted, refurbished, reused or recycled. It is a key element of Signify’s commitment to doubling its circular revenues to 32% in 2025, as part of the Brighter Lives, Better World 2025 program which was launched in September 2020.

     

    A typical manufactured 3D printed luminaire (excluding electronics and optics) has a 47% lower carbon footprint than a conventionally manufactured metal luminaire. The company has perfected this highly flexible, more sustainable form of manufacturing, using a 100% recyclable polycarbonate material, which allows luminaires to be bespoke designed or tailored to customer’s exact needs and recycled at the end of their life.

     

    “At Signify, we apply the principles of the circular economy, which emphasizes recycling, in order to make our business model more sustainable. Our 3D printing machines for luminaires will enable us to fully re-use the base material, leaving very little waste and creating a fully green product lifecycle,” Rami added.

    Customizable luminaire for every need

     

    The 3D printing service offers both homeowners and professional customers in Indonesia the opportunity to design and create luminaires according to their needs and preference and have their ideas brought to life in a matter of weeks rather than months. To ease the design process, Signify provide a range of high-quality basic luminaire designs including downlights, projectors and pendants, which allow customers to add their personal touches by mixing and matching design elements, such as color or texture, for neatly endless possibilities.

     

    Businesses and retailers can order luminaires with customized colors, shapes and sizes to beautify their store or brand or highlight their displays. Offices can select from the more functional series of downlights and custom design the shapes, materials and textures to the needs of their workplace and make employees feel more comfortable. Hotels and restaurants can personalize their luminaires with this flexible solution for decorative yet functional lighting which allow them to give a fresh touch to their interior faster and easier.

     

    What is remarkable with these 3D-printed luminaires is the recyclable material used. Once homeowners or professional customers need to adjust or adapt to new needs, preference or trends, they can return their luminaires and Signify will process and reuse the materials to create new luminaires. This is how Signify, together with the consumers, contribute to a better environment by reducing waste.

     

    Signify is the first lighting manufacturer to produce 3D-printed luminaires on an industrial scale, and in addition to Indonesia, this service is the first of its kind globally. Customers can easily tailor their luminaires using the online configurators at Philips lighting stores, while businesses can contact our nearest sales representatives for professional projects.
