Philips brings home the magic of Disney

Philips has announced a portfolio of innovative, inspiring and playful lighting products, combining Philips’ lighting expertise with Disney’s beloved characters.
The products - which include StoryLights, SoftPals, LED Candles and Micro lamps - feature Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and characters from Cars and Monsters Inc. They transform children’s bedrooms into imaginative spaces for reading, playing and sleeping. Children can interact with stories through connected lighting, fall asleep to the nightlights, or benefit from lights that promote healthy sleep patterns. Products will be sold in Europe and the US from September, with Asia and Canada to follow later in the year.

A century of research into improving lives

A century of research into improving lives

2014 marks 100 years since Philips Research was established - a landmark that the company will celebrate throughout the year. Anton and Gerard Philips, the company’s founders, created the Natuurkundig Laboratorium in 1914 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Since then, Philips’ focus on innovations that touch lives has resulted in more than 165,000 granted patents, including game-changing X-ray tubes, radios that connect continents, pioneering shavers, as well as the very first audio cassettes and CDs. Today, Philips has one of the world’s largest corporate research organizations, employing 1,500 professionals across six locations.
