        Jakarta, Indonesia - Royal Philips Electronics( NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) has officially opened another lighting branded store in Indonesia at PLAZA KENARI MAS, an area widely known as the go to place for consumers seeking to purchase any types of lighting products and home equipment. The Kenari store is Philips’ fourth lighting branded store in Indonesia, with additional stores planned to open this year.


    As the leading company in the lighting industry, Philips is transforming from a manufacturer of bulbs and components to an end-user and consumer oriented comprehensive lighting solution provider by introducing a wide range of new technologies, products and services that address both current and new uses of light.


    “With the fast growth of Indonesian economy and urbanization in recent years, more and more people hope to have a much healthier and more comfortable living space to express their own taste and personality. The development of real estate and home decoration brings great potential for home lighting industry. Philips is dedicated to the home lighting market in Indonesia through providing meaningful innovations to meet the needs of local consumers,” says Robert Fletcher, President Director of PT. Philips Indonesia at the inauguration of Philips Kenari Store today.      


    To prepare homes for the future, Philips provides LED lighting technology that allows home owners to light up their homes in multiple ways to reflect their personalities, moods and functional needs. “As my wife and I are currently building a new house, we are ecstatic to hear that Philips has opened the Kenari store for consumers like us who are keen to utilize the latest lighting innovations that are green, sustainable and able to create an aesthetically pleasing ambiance,” states Rifat Sungkar.


          “Kenari branded store is not just a straight forward lighting store; rather, it is a boutique lighting gallery which was built with a concept of "Home Lighting Experience" in mind. Philips home lighting product lines are displayed to simulate real home environment. At the store, consumers are encouraged to get inspired by the thematic rooms and provided with consultations on lighting solutions, and information regarding the many benefits of Philips lighting products including energy efficiency and being environmentally friendly,” explains Ryan Tirta Yudhistira, Head of Country Marketing at Philips Lighting Indonesia.



    The store is divided into various rooms designed with different themes, paying attention to details such as having toys in the “children’s bedroom” or displaying a rice cooker in the “pantry”. All rooms are equipped with different types of Philips lighting, to suit lighting required for different activities in the house and to create distinct impressions for each room. There is also a “creative lounge” where customers can meet with their friends, colleagues, and even clients to discuss about best lighting solutions in an environment that is cozy and relaxed.
