Signify brings home silverware from iF Design Awards


    02 April 2019


    Signify’s commitment to cutting-edge innovation and user-friendly design has been recognized at the 2019 iF Design Awards.


    The Philips Hue app won in the Communications Design category and ten different products were recognized for Product Design.


    iF has been the international standard for cutting-edge design since 1953. That was the year Philip Rosenthal, together with the Hannover Trade Fair company (Hannover Messe) got together to draw attention to particularly well-designed industrial products.


    For 66 years their objective has been to communicate the importance of design and its possibilities for users, brands and society. This year, 67 international jurors from 20 countries judged 6,400 entries from 50 countries.


    Here are the 11 Signify winners…

    Philips Hue Adore mirror

    Philips Hue Adore

    The Philips Adore bathroom mirror creates ideal lighting conditions with no unwanted shadows, helping people energize, concentrate or relax – and look their best. Made from high quality materials, it’s specifically designed for the humidity and wetness of the bathroom.


    Philips Hue Liane

    The Philips Hue Liane is a white and color wall light that can be synced with music and movies, like all Philips Hue lights. Its sleek design adds a modern touch to home interiors, placing an emphasis on the indirect light which influences our mood and behavior.


    Philips Hue Outdoor Lightstrip

    Thin and compact, the Philips Hue Outdoor Lightstrip provides light in places that traditional designs can’t reach. It’s an excellent way to accentuate the contours of facades, porches and fences. The subtle design is completely watertight and it connects via safe and secure Philips low-volt cables.


    Philips Hue Play

    Compact and highly versatile, Philips Hue Play light bar family enables immersive lighting experiences when watching TV. Highly flexible mounting options ensure it adapts to – and enhances – your home entertainment system.


    Philips High Lumen Master LEDspot

    The premium light of the Philips High Lumen master LEDspots closely mimics halogen’s high color rendering, without the harsh, cold light of some LED lamps. Long-lasting, efficient and compatible with most halogen fixtures, they minimize operating and maintenance costs.


    Philips MasterConnect LEDtube

    The Philips MasterConnect LEDtube is a simple way to upgrade to a connected lighting system. Through dimming, occupancy sensing and/or daylight harvesting, it can deliver at least a 50% energy reduction compared to conventional lamps. The 2.4 GHz wireless mesh networking technology reliably and securely integrates with various control devices.


    Philips Ledalite EyeLine

    The thin, modular panels of the Philips EyeLine offer a range of direct and indirect light combinations to match any interior. Glare-free LED illumination is complemented by robust performance, and the curved ends add soft transition in geometry and lightness.


    Philips SmartBright Road

    The compact and slim Philips SmartBright IP65 is a new generation road lamp. Delivering maximum thermal efficiency, its simple top surface design and ‘light only’ approach minimizes material use to focus on light output.


    Philips TownTune

    This range of urban luminaires offers a variety of modular accessories that lets customers play with the design. From new, modern icons to traditional archetypes the customer-led configurations allow the line to fit diverse environments.


    Philips GreenPerform Highbay Elite / Philips Coreline Highbay

    The new generation Philips GreenPerform Highbay Elite/ Philips Coreline Highbay is a lightweight luminaire that uses a compact driver and circular LED board to provide better thermal management. This creates a simple overall profile. The strong black/silver contrast gives an extra-premium feel.
