Philips has won an exceptional 31 world-renowned iF awards for material, packaging and product communications design – with nine awards for our consumer luminaires.

The iF product design awards honour outstanding achievements in design and are seen as a "seal of good design" throughout the global world of design and beyond. An internationally renowned jury, consisting of 44 design experts, has engaged in a critical discussion and debate to select the winning products. Out of 4,322 entries submitted by 1,605 participants from 48 countries, the iF product design awards jury has selected 1,218 favorites as the best designs for 2012.


“We are proud to be honoured with nine iF design awards for our consumer luminaires ranges. It is a great recognition for our products, the design teams and our business group, and clearly shows our capabilities in design as well as our leadership in LED”, says Heleen Engelen, Senior Design Director at Philips Consumer Luminaires. “We recently started developing LED based solutions and these awards are an inspiration and boost for the future.”


All prize-winning products will be presented at the iF design exhibition in Hanover, Germany from March 6 until the 10th, 2012 and in Hamburg the second half of 2012. On February 10, 2012 the awards ceremony will take place in Munich, Germany where the 100 Gold Award Winners will be announced. More information can be found at

Lirio Cielo

The design is the result of a new way of thinking around an existing archetype. The contrast between the outside shape and the high-tech, hollow inside is only possible with LED light sources.


Lirio Trelome
A high end, energy saving, pendant with a design that communicates innovation through the use of LEDs. The domes; smoothly rising up out of the slim body, hint at the origin and the direction of the cast light.

Lirio Balanza
A new variation on the classic, archetypical lamp shade. The design style is “deceptively simple” with its graphical, clear volumes.



SmartSpot LEDdisk
Minimalist recessed products that seamlessly blend into interiors. Innovative energy saving LEDs create light accents in every home.


SmartSpot Bologna
High power LED spot with a playful design. The mechanism “guides” the light through its shape and can be directed anywhere desired.

Ledino Lamps
These luminaires have a clear, iconic outline and elegant construction; possible through the use of LED technology.
*Available in Australia

Ledino Outdoor
The contour provides a robust shape for outdoor application and the recessed cut out is shaped as if it is made by the light coming from the hidden LED light source.
*Available in Australia

LivingColors Bloom
The design of the product is organic and reduced with the focus on the projected multi colored LED light. It can be place virtually everywhere in a room.

Arcitone spot
The design of this luminaire is inspired by architecture and illustrates the advanced LED-technology and the resulting flatness of the applied LED-disc.
