LEDs are easy to produce, generate very little heat, and are super energy efficient, using only one-eighth of the power of traditiona l bulbs and less than half that of fluorescent lights. Philips has come up with a variety of ways to adjust the color, brightness and tone of a bulb with simple, in tuitive hand gestures, such as touching or twisting. The "Simplicty" LED bulbs are so nicely designed (with a wide variety of interesting shapes to choose from) that it eliminates the need for any sort of lamp coveri ng. Sense & Simplic ty design project, which the company haas been working on for the past y ear to demonstrate the power of simplicity-led design in driving innovat ion. In Paris in September, Philips launched 25 new design concepts at The Sim plicity Event at L' Espace Grande Arche. email) - 07 11 05 - 02:11 sassy_red_head & juicymixx> 3-5 years was mentioned in the Business Week Online article! I wouldnt expect anything even close for at least one y ear. As for the fittings, it looks as though they are currently designed aroun d existing types of light fittings (bayonet or screw). It seems a bit po intless creating LED lights that fit standard fittings (or indeed are to be used in a similar way) as the real beauty of LEDs is that they can b e made thinner, into more elaborate shapes and not be limited by their f ittings (there is no need for them to be easily replacable given a 10+ye ar lifetime). Having followed the LED technology for a number of years Im surprised it s still taking this long for realised LED designs, about 3 years ago I w as reading about commercially available high-power LEDs (5w) so why the re has been nothing is a tad frustrating. email) - 07 11 05 - 08:38 leave a comment Please note: Inhabitat is a weblog about contemporary design.
