Philips introduces an innovative new LED luminaire design for homes


Piega Luce: ultra-thin LED luminaire redefining the essence of light at home

februar 6, 2014

    Kontich, Belgium – Exploring the possibilities of LED lighting design, Philips unveils a groundbreaking new design, redefining the essence of light. Lirio by Philips’ Piega Luce is a ultra-thinly folded pendent and wall light with a unique warm wood exterior. Inspired by nature and the simple form of a single folded sheet of paper, the sleek design of Piega Luce (made possible through innovative use of LEDs) transforms your home into a modern and sophisticated space.

 

 

Seamless light flow 
The Piega Luce provides a seamless flow of light from a minimalist body. Specifically designed to illuminate elongated features in the home, light flows from three edges of the slender Piega Luce, making it appear to float weightlessly in the air for a beautiful shadow effect in the home. The long-lasting warm white light powered by Philips LED technology can be easily dimmed to create a more intimate atmosphere.
    

 

Minimalist earthbound design for inspirational living
The Piega Luce combines the best of European design and engineering. High quality aluminium is crafted to drape over a flexible LED core, and coated with a high quality walnut veneer. Piega Luce is available in warm American Walnut or Dark Smoke for a truly unique look.

 

Trend alert: Wood minimalism – streamlined design is moving away from clinical colors and materials, instead embracing the comforting but contemporary look of natural, warm-toned wood.

 

Top tip: Suspend the Piega Luce over a long surface, such as a dining room table or kitchen counter, to add elegance to the space and highlight the sleek design. Use the Piega Luce to create a warm, intimate mood light when entertaining friends or simply enjoying the comfort of your home style.
