Through the usage of different materials and production techniques this product has reached the right market positioning. Both price wise as design wise. This product and project are part of a larger portfolio harmonization and positioning project for Philips TL fixtures. </li></ul></ul>Celino
  8. 8. Lighting indoor <ul><li>TL-5 Luminaire </li></ul><ul><li>Client: Philips Lighting </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2006 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : low-end TL-5 fixture for surface mounting and suspending for application in schools and offices.. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : The basis of these two designs is one identical role formed cross section. With the two different end caps it is possible to achieve to completely different designs, which can be applied in several architectural contexts. This product and project are part of a larger portfolio harmonization and positioning project for Philips TL fixtures. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Lighting outdoor <ul><li>Metronomis </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips Lighting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 1998 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : A modular city beautification luminaire. The base of the luminaire is the cone-shaped pole mount. It can house a variety of gears for many different lamp types. Around the lamps different light effect accessories can be placed to change the light character. On the base two main shapes of bowls can be fitted. A cylindrical and a conical one. They change the shape of the product outline. With additional accessories it is possible to make the product look like known archetypes in outdoor lighting and to make it fit in different architectural contexts. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : The main challenge with this design was to make a luminaire that would fit the complete European market. And could bridge the differences in taste between North and South. The modularity of this concept was the key to the solution. With its recognizable archetypes and its innovative construction this product is one of the best sold luminaires of Europe. </li></ul></ul>

  11. 11. Lighting outdoor <ul><li>CityZen </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips Lighting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2003 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : PLL Post top luminaire for newly created urban dwellings in the Netherlands. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : Prior to the design stage we researched the character of these newly build cities in the Netherlands w.r.t. their architecture, structure and socio-dynamics. This made us design a luminaire that referred to an existing archetype, but in a very modern design and an innovative construction with innovative use of materials. This connects with with mainly young population of these neighborhoods. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>User friendliness was one of the key drivers. This is expressed in the gear tray that is light weight and can easily be tilted to replace the lamp. In the mean time the lit can be hooked on the side of the luminaire to have both hands free for servicing. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At the moment many old luminaires in the Netherlands are being replaced by this product. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Lighting outdoor <ul><li>Iridium </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips Lighting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 1997 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : Iridium is the most advanced road lighting luminaire in the world. But accessible for a wide market because of its affordable price. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : This project started in 1995 with an elaborate market and trend study. Our main inspiration came from the automobile industry. Before this product was designed most road lights looked like square boxes, known as “Koffer Leuchte”. The introduction of Iridium marked a revolution in road lighting design. This luminaire is the first product that incorporates all the technical and market requirements in a harmonized and well designed product range. Through it’s fluid shape the luminaire looks very gracious on the pole. The sales are exceeding 1 million pieces since its introduction in the year 2000. </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Lighting outdoor <ul><li>Selenium </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips Lighting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2002 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : Selenium is a luminaire that is specifically targeted at the southern and eastern European market. Cost price and design are a mayor issue in these countries. There was a wish for a well performing basic luminaire with good lighting performance. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : The main shape of the product was determined by the wish to harmonize the product with Iridium. But because this was to be a low-end product we simplified the design and construction. To make the product look smaller than it actually was we separated the pole mounting volume visually from the main volume. </li></ul></ul>Iridium
  14. 14. Lighting outdoor <ul><li>ArenaVision </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips Lighting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 1995 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : Stadium light. The beam of a stadium light always hits the ground on an angle. This results in an oval light spot on the field. The oval optic of this luminaire compensates this effect and creates a round spot on the filed. Making it easier to create a uniform lighting. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : The design is aimed to put maximum emphasis on the innovative oval optic. The housing follows the shape of the optic. The aerodynamic design (tested in wind tunnel of Renault) creates less wind load and allows for a lighter mounting construction of the lighting system. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The luminaire is used in all the famous stadiums in the world. It will be applied in the new Beijing Olympic stadium by Herzog and de Meuron. </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Security
  16. 16. Security <ul><li>POS observation system </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips CSI (Bosch) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 1999 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : An observation system for security in shops. The system consists of a CRT monitor, one or several cameras with optional lenses and a dome camera. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : These products are often placed on the counter in a shop because it is operated by the shop owner or his personnel. Therefore we analyzed the trends in shop interiors and designed a system to fit in. We paid extra attention to the back of the monitor because it is the side that faces the client. In this segment it is innovative to design a system that has not the looks of a security system but more a lifestyle image. </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. Professional equipment
  18. 18. Professional equipment <ul><li>Conferencing system </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips CSI (Bosch) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2002 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : A professional DECT communication system. The system will amongst others be used in industry, hospitals and prisons. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : The challenge was to design one system that would fit in the very different application situations and environments. It had to be elegant enough to fit into a doctor’s chest pocket and robust enough to be thrown in a serviceman's toolbox. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The docking and charging unit is designed in such a way that it can be used in desktop position as well as in a wall mounted position. This can be achieved by reversing the silver part of the unit. The reversibility is not noticed but looks like a dedicated part. </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. Professional equipment <ul><li>Titan TEM electron microscope </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: FEI </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2005 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : Titan brings nano-scale microscopy within reach of researchers en developers. Within minutes after inserting a sample the machine delivers analysis on an atom level. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : In this market it is important that the financers of the system can see the technology they have invested in. For the use of the microscope it is better if all parts are encapsulated to shield the system from environmental influences such as magnetism, temperature fluctuations and sound vibrations. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This design both covers the technical parts and leaves them visible through the smoke glass front panel. The system is designed around the user in an ergonomic way. The hand panels are designed in such a way that they can be used around the “fishbowl” as well as in front of the monitor. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The market share of FEI in this market segment has grown to 70%! </li></ul></ul>                                                                                                                                                                                   
  20. 20. Consumer
  21. 21. Consumer <ul><li>Color desktop printers for the EU market </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Hewlett Packard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2002 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : Color inkjet printer for the European market. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : Hewlett Packard wanted several concepts specially designed for the European market. We conducted a so called “culture scan” where we investigated the socio-cultural trends in Europe. We defined trends in architecture, literature, art, movie, and popular culture such as commercials and music. The results were clustered in to mayor trends. These trends were then translated into materials, shapes and finishes that were manifestations of there character. They were the starting point for the designs. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This concept is build up out of clearly identifiable, intersecting dynamic volumes. The detailing is very minimalist but of a very high quality and sophistication. Materials are high gloss, transparents and have a high contrast and bright color. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>On the next page you see an other concept for this study. </li></ul></ul>
  22. 22. Consumer <ul><li>Color desktop printers for the EU market </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Hewlett Packard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2002 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : Color inkjet printer for the European market. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : The main volumes consist out of softened square blocks. The colors and materials are serene white, glossy and semi transparent. Detailing is kept to a minimum to keep the attention on the overall appearance. A LED inside makes that the shadows of the moving mechanism inside the printer are projected from the inside out on to the skin of the product. </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. Consumer <ul><li>Torch family </li></ul><ul><li>Client: Philips, Torches and Batteries </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2001 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : A range of torches consisting out of a pocket torch, waterproof torch, a flashlight. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : Chinese suppliers sold the same OEM products to Philips and its competitors. Therefore exclusivity was not longer guaranteed. That’s why it was decided to design a special Philips Range. This was one of our first experiences with Chinese suppliers and it took a lot of effort to get the designs executed as intended. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In the design we have matched friendliness with robustness and functionality. </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Consumer <ul><li>C Bright LCD Projector </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips, Creative Display Solutions (CDS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 1999 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : With this projector Philips wanted to penetrate the market of schools. Where the usage of conventional slide projectors was still common. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : The design of this projector had to radiate simplicity of use, mobility and robustness. Comparable to the known slide projectors. Silver surface draws the focus of the user to the lens and the clear laid-out user interface. The visual appearance of the volume is kept to a minimum by placing the rounded corners and chamfers in places where they resulted in the best effect. The volume looks lighter because it seems to float above the surface. </li></ul></ul>
  25. 25. Consumer <ul><li>LCD Projector </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips, Creative Display Solutions (CDS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2001 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : A low-end LCD projector with a target price of 500 Euro. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : To reach target price we could not work with optimized volumes and components. This resulted in very basic projector. The design can be recognized by the clear lay-out of all the sides. The legs make the projector look lighter then it actually is. </li></ul></ul>
  26. 26. Consumer <ul><li>LCD Projector </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips, Creative Display Solutions (CDS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2001 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : A professional easy to transport LCD projector. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : To emphasize the mobility of this projector we made a reference to the well known Samsonite suitcases from the 1970’s. All cooling slots are hidden in the ribs that run around the product. All sides and surfaces are slightly curved to give the product a soft but still professional character. </li></ul></ul>
  27. 27. Medical
  28. 28. Medical <ul><li>Digital Dental Camera </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: : Amedeq </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2005 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : By means of a prism a picture can be taken perpendicular to the teeth arc. These pictures can used to easily show a patient the problems of his teeth and also to monitor progress in tooth and jaw reconstruction. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : This project is a cooperation between the University of Nijmegen (NL), who developed the technique. Amedeq who is bringing the technology to the market and Philips Design who made the concept into a market conform product. We paid special attention to patient and user friendliness and hygiene. The LCD display can be turned in all position over two axels to enable usage in any possible user scenario. Also the patient is able to see the picture when the picture is taken. The mouth piece can be replaced by two other models for different applications. </li></ul></ul>

Prototypes en demo modellen <ul><li>POGO </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Client: Philips, Research </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Year: 2001 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Product description : A system consisting out of several devices for children in the age between 4 and 7 to help foster and stimulate story telling, a common favorite activity for this age group. With a camera and microphone stories, movies and pictures can be recorded. The recordings are “attached” to so called “tokens” with a RFID tag. With the “pot” and “wand” the tokens can be read. A story can then be compiled from different samples and projected on a wall. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project description : The devices in the pictures are all working prototypes and were tested on a reference group. The research goal was to see how modern multi-media technology could be used in and could contribute in a school environment. The kids played spontaneously with the devices as they were intended. </li></ul></ul>
