LG breaks with conventional concepts of Lighting at Light + Building 2014
LG Electronics (LG) will mark the expansion of its global lighting business by introducing its newest lighting products at the Light+Building 2014 trade show from March 30 to April 4 at the Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre in Germany. Under the theme of Simply Smart in Lighting, LG will showcase advanced lighting technologies in the areas of Energy Savings & Payback, Connect & Control and Comfort & Well-being.
Making its global debut will be LG’s Smart Bulb, which can be connected directly to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth or WiFi and controlled with a free Android or iOS app. Typing security mode when leaving one’s home will cause Smart Bulb to begin cycling itself on and off automatically at different times until the owner returns. Smart Bulb offers three modes of operation that can be personalized for each individual: Sleep Mode, Absence Mode and Convenience Mode.
Other LG lighting products on display at Light+Building 2014 are:
LG’s OLED Table Lamp features LG Chem’s advanced curved OLED technology, mass-produced for the first time as the next generation light source. OLED panels produce their own light and are incredibly thin and flexible. Considered by many as the next generation light source, LG OLED Table Lamp also features smart functionality and can be controlled remotely with a compatible smartphone.
LG LED Flat Light incorporates the company’s advanced optical technology from its incredibly thin LED TVs, making LG’s LED Flat Light approximately 70 percent slimmer than competing LED lighting. The slim profile and soft light generated by LG LED Flat Light makes this appropriate for most living and work spaces.
LG’s Color Converting Flat Light has the ability to change its color and color temperature to create a unique mood for any room. Light has always been known to have an amazing effect on people, both emotionally and biologically. Used effectively, LG’s Color Converting Flat Light can play a key role in promoting the well-being of individuals and creating a pleasant ambience.
Benefitting from the company’s proprietary technology in heat dissipation, LG LED-T111 lighting offers the brightness of a 70 watt metal-halide lamp (3,400 lumens) from its small and light form factor. This product is a perfect match for high-end retail stores and other commercial spaces where premium feel and energy efficiency are high priori-ties.
LG’s LED Streetlights and Downlights are designed to be modular to meet the needs of various environments and customers. The modular design makes LG lights more future-proof since older parts and components can be replaced with more efficient ones. Modular design also has the potential to save customers money because only certain parts need to be changed — as opposed to the entire luminaire housing — and future upgrades would likely result in higher energy efficiency. And to ensure that LG LED Streetlights properly blend in with their surroundings, LG set a high priority on minimalistic design with high functionality.
“At Light+Building, LG is presenting a new paradigm of lighting solutions that breaks with conventional concepts and traditions,” said Si-kwan Ryu, executive vice president of LG Electronics’ Lighting Business. “Our newest smart and energy efficient lighting products are expected to set new standards of innovation and deliver even higher value to our customers.”
As the world’s largest trade fair for lighting and building-services technology solutions, the biennial Light+Building trade show is host to 2,300 exhibitors and nearly 200,000 visitors from the fields of architecture, design, engineering and other related disciplines. Visitors to the Light+Building show are encouraged to see LG’s newest lighting products for themselves at the company’s booth in Halle 6 Ebene 2 Stand A60 from March 30 to April 4, 2014.
