Milan 2009: Philips Debuts Ledino Lighting Collection
Posted By Lea Stewart On May 1, 2009 @ 12:00 am In Green Lighting,Milan Furniture Fair,New York City | No Comments
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.
Check out our full 2009 Milan Furniture Fair coverage  for more green designs from the show.
