The Pedestrian LED Luminaire from Philips, designed to illuminate pathways and other pedestrian areas, has won the prestigious Gold iF product design award.
Royal Philips Electronics has won the much sought-after Gold iF product design award for the Pedestrian LED Luminaire.

The Dutch company picked up a further 20 awards in this renowned and prestigious international design competition.

The Pedestrian LED Luminaire combines the proven benefits of LED lighting - such as extremely long lifespan and low energy use - with the need for a welcoming ambience in the urban environment that promotes social interaction and increases the feeling of safety.

Last year, Philips installed several luminaires in a town in the Netherlands - see Philips installs LED streetlights in Dutch town of Ede.

Pedestrian LED Luminaire The Pedestrian LED Luminaire is intended for illuminating pathways, squares, shopping areas and any other places where an architectural pedestrian lighting solution is required.

The LEDs in Pedestrian LED Luminaire should last for approximately 50,000 hours, which is three times as long as lamps currently used in similar situations. The light distribution on the ground is very uniform due to the high-efficiency lenses. Its robust, solid aluminium construction is able to withstand the rigours of an outdoor environment.

In the iF Lighting category, in addition to the success of the Pedestrian LED Luminaire, there were awards for the LED Architectural Floodlight, Savio Range and Master Traffic Signalling Lamp.
