The demand for smart and ecofriendly home lighting is on the rise.
On Friday, Philips Hue announced three new products that will be available for customers. One of these products is 3D printed artistic luminaries.
Also known as light sculptures, these 3D printed lamps are inspired by nature and are able to be controlled with the latest technology.
Philips Hue is a Wi-Fi enabled lighting system that allows you to control brightness and hue from your smartphone or tablet. They also allow you to set the lights to dim as bedtime nears and gradually illuminate to wake you up in the morning.
Philips has taken their lighting to a new level with 3D printing, allowing them to create a more eye-catching design. The designs were co-created with design teams WetelOberfell and Strand+Hvass. The products, known as 3D smart luminaries, incorporate 3D printed shapes and hue bulbs. The lamps are available in both pendant and table styles and are fully compatible with the hue systems.
The designs are so complex that they could not have been produced without the help of 3D printing.
“The result is an exquisite light effect that transforms a lifeless living space into a colorfully lit ode to nature,” Designer Gernot Oberfell says.
With numerous designs, all featuring inspiration by images from nature, the lamps are definitely one of a kind.
The luminaries will be on display, March 31st-April 4th, at the Light and Building show in Frankfurt, Germany.
