Signify is building on a best-in-class performance in 2018/19 with a haul of accolades from the 66th iF Design Awards in Hamburg Germany.
Some 67 international jurors from 20 countries judged 6,400 entries from 50 countries. Signify won one prize in the iF Communications Design category and 10 in the iF Product Design category.
The wins are a testament to Signify’s design strengths and commitment to be the leading innovator in connected lighting for the Internet of Things (IoT).
Signify is committed to investing in Design and R&D. Both have an instrumental role in reshaping its business. During the past five years Signify has reinvented its portfolio, leading the shift from conventional lighting to energy-efficient LED and connected lighting products, systems and services.
The success of this transformation is evident in the awards, which range from wirelessly networked office lighting, to the new Philips Hue app, which incorporates feedback from users to make it even easier for them to create special ambiances and light their home smarter.
“Winning awards isn’t simply down to how much we invest in R&D and Design but more about our approach,” said Olivia Qiu, Chief Innovation Officer for Signify. “Our R&D and Design teams work in a truly integrated way and we’re driven by user needs."
"Design isn’t an afterthought to make products look attractive. From the outset it’s part and parcel of every decision we take and shaped by user needs.”
