Royal Philips Electronics will receive an exceptional 31 world-renowned iF awards, including nine awards for lighting products.

Out of 4322 entries submitted by 1605 participants from 48 countries, the jury of the iF product design award has selected their 1218 favorites as the best designs for 2012.
“We continuously challenge ourselves in bringing design innovation from concept to production in order to create designs that are meaningful to people and valuable to business. The 31 products that have now won an iF design award are a great recognition for our products, the design teams, and Philips as a company,” said Sean Carney, chief design officer, Philips Design.
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 www.ifdesign.de.
iF Product Design Awards for Philips Lighting
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.
