Lamps of Desire for Philips

For the ‘Lamps of Desire’ project Jacob de Baan proposed a series of designs for energy-efficient domestic lighting for Philips, Osram, Sylvania/ Lumiance and Novem.
‘The lights provide a sparkling warm red light reminiscent of the soft glow of a candle. De Baan’s fascination with the functioning of the human eye, his obsession with light, coupled with his technical expertise have resulted in a new typology of energy-saving lights – that cannot only perform in an environmentally friendly way, but that look good too.’
