Philips has launched Luminous Patterns, a programmable connected LED lighting system designed for architects and designers to create a striking visual statement using a unique combination of light, patterns and materials. Its low-energy, decorative panels are environmentally friendly, cost-effective and can be used to illuminate and customise a wide range of interiors.
"These embedded LED light patterns bring brilliance, warmth and sparkle into traditionally 'mute' architectural surfaces," said Brad Koerner, Venture Manager Luminous Patterns at Philips Lighting. "Designers have until now felt that integrating lighting features in architectural surfaces have been difficult to specify, costly to manufacture, and risky to install. With Philips Luminous Patterns, designers can now embed innovative and eye-catching lighting features into their designs in a straightforward and cost-effective manner."
The customizable light patterns are available in a broad range of lighting styles and textures that can be freely placed within custom-sized panels finished in a range of decorative coatings and in the graphic prints of choice. Also, customers are able to choose from four unique light effects: 3D Graphics, 2D Graphics, Round Sparkle, and Linear Sparkle. Production is based on a custom-order basis within the parameters of a standard configuration kit, enabling a simple and straightforward process from order to installation.
In addition, Luminous Patterns consume very little energy, with an entire installation using approximately the same amount of energy as a humble 60-watt bulb. Once installed, the innovative system is easily controlled via a digital control system. Each light point is controlled separately, meaning all of the points in a wall or ceiling can be programmed to create dynamic lighting effects.
