Philips Hue Connected Light Bulb

Philips Hue Connected Light Bulb

One thing that most people don’t put much thought into is the light bulbs they buy. Sure, you probably go for the most energy-efficient ones out but all you do is look for the Energy Star logo and you’re all set. Now, with technology evolving at such a rapid pace, it’s no surprise Philips has developed the Hue. Hue is a different kind of light bulb. It allows you to customize the look and mood of a room with each Hue light bulb delivering 600 lumens and producing all shades of white, from warm to cold, and a wide variety of colour. The Hue’s great for personal or commercial customization as you can connect up to 50 Hue light bulbs to a single system and control it all with your iPhone or iPad from wherever you are.

Oh, and it uses 80% less power than a traditional light bulb. Check out the video and purchase yours through the Apple Store.

V12 Design x I TRE: Icon Lamp


Design by Milan’s V12 Design, the Icon Lamp comes in a ceiling and suspension version. It was designed for Italian lighting manufacturer I TRE.

Here’s what V12’s Valerio Cometti had to say about their latest creation:

Icon owes its strong personality to its distinctive shape and to the juxtaposition of opaque and transparent materials. Icon is a large decorative lamp and I’m particularly pleased with the way the light projected by its own light source interacts with it: the vast opalescent disc on the bottom side of the lamp enhances the quality of the light emission and the glass ribbon creates an elegant ring of light that brings together the heart of Icon with the external environment. It is a precious light manufactured with a great deal of accuracy, beautifully finished with its liquid painted spun metal parts, seamlessly joined with pressed glass and plexiglass details.
