CityWing

Gold
2006

Client: Royal Philips Electronics (Netherlands)

Using state-of-the-art high-powered LEDs, CityWing emits a uniform wide beam of warm light for added pedestrian safety and comfort. The flat panel-like optics allow a unprecedented thin profile for architects and planners who want a discrete lighting solution. Its distinctive flat form is enhanced by the reflective metallic surface finishing, with the mounting pole and bracket complementing the demure proportions. A more natural light hue than typical commercial floodlights is produced by mixing white and amber LEDs. CityWing also significantly reduces energy costs.

“Extraordinarily good use of old technology. Consistent with today’s architectural aesthetics, and completely redefines the space of public lighting.”
