As part of the Euroluce exhibition at the Milan Furniture Fair, Royal Philips Electronics showcased a wide range of cutting edge LED lighting products. Our favorite designs on display were part of their newly debuted Ledino collection, an extensive range of stylish indoor and outdoor fixtures that provide 80% energy savings over standard incandescent bubs. The lights have a very low wattage and minimal CO2 emissions, but it is much more than their energy efficiency that makes these lights notable.
The Ledino line is an impressive showcase of LED technology, and we are not the only ones who think so – the Ledino table lamp was awarded the prestigious “Lights of the Future” award. The sweeping forms in the collection are made primarily from aluminum, some with added translucent panels. Their crisp silhouettes seem to hover from the ceiling, balance on the table, or pose on the wall.
The pucks that are inside these fixtures hold three LumiLed Luxeon Rebel LEDs, which are high output, cool to the touch, and available in colors mimicking warm incandescents. The LEDs will last 20 year and never need to be changed, cutting down on maintenance. An added feature is that the majority of the fixtures in the line are also dimmable.
