Where light and architecture collide


What if light were treated in the same way as a structural architectural element, such as molding, a window, or an interior wall? Would this give designers and architects new freedom to use light in an unexpected and striking way?

Thanks to the newly launched Luminous Patterns, this is now possible. The exciting application allows the use of light combined with hard materials to create signature lighting design installations.
This programmable connected LED lighting system can help architects and designers create a striking visual statement using a unique combination of light, patterns and materials. Hotel lobbies, reception areas and foyers will benefit greatly from this new possibility for design.

Light and architecture
“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 has 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 graphic prints of choice. In addition, customers are able to choose from four unique light effects: Round Sparkle, Linear Sparkle, 2D Graphics, 3D Graphics. 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.

Furthermore, 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.

Imagine the possibilities! We’re looking forward to watching this new technology take off.
