Signify’s 3D-Printed Luminaires Set the Bar for Sustainable Design Excellence at Salone del Mobile

April 28, 2023

  • Exhibition will feature exclusive new 3D-printed luminaires from textile designer Aleksandra Gaca
  • 3D-printed luminaires made with recycled materials reduce carbon emissions, eliminate waste, and contribute to a circular economy
  • Signify’s professional and consumer 3D-printed portfolio unites under Philips MyCreation brand

 Signify showcased new additions to its sustainable 3D-printed lighting collection at one of the world’s leading international design fair, Salone del Mobile. The exhibition featured an exclusive collaboration with innovative textile designer Aleksandra Gaca, and Signify’s award-winning Coastal Breeze collection, which is made with 100% recycled fishing nets.

From April 18 – 23 2023, Salone del Mobile transforms Milan into the epicenter of innovation and design. Signify’s 3D-printed luminaires were on display at Masterly – Dutch Design in Milano. Visitors experienced a mesmerizing lighting presentation featuring a stunning tree of lights. A special highlight was a new design with exceptional textures and exclusive finishes, from Aleksandra Gaca. Gaca’s innovative woven textiles sit at the intersection of art, design and architecture and match perfectly with the 3D printing technology used to create Philips MyCreation lighting objects.

Costal breeze Collection by Aleksandra Gaca

As a textile designer, I am really excited about the 3D printing techniques developed by Signify, because they allow me to quickly and easily incorporate my textures into everyday objects within anyone’s reach. I also feel really connected to the company’s commitment to sustainability. The Philips MyCreation Coastal Breeze project is a powerful demonstration that the union of design and innovation can give life to a more beautiful world and a more sustainable future.”

Three Dimensions of Sustainability

Signify continues to push the boundaries of sustainable design with its 3D-printed luminaires that reduce emissions, reduce waste, and contribute to a circular economy. All the 3D-printed luminaires are made with at least 55% recycled or bio-circular materials. A reinvented manufacturing process cuts the number of components by up to 40% and eliminates the need for glue, making it much easier to disassemble and recycle parts for repair and refurbishment. Lighter materials create fewer carbon emissions, and since the products are printed on demand, no unsold stock goes to waste.

Signify’s award-winning Coastal Breeze collection was on display at Salone del Mobile. This special collection is made with 100% recycled fishing nets, transforming waste material into beautiful, functional pieces for the home.

Philips MyCreation: A Hallmark of Sustainable Design

Signify’s 3D printing enterprise is one of its fastest-growing business units, contributing to the company’s goal to double its circular revenues to 32% by the end of 2025. In 2023, Signify brought together all 3D-printed professional and consumer collections under the Philips MyCreation brand. Philips MyCreation now encompasses Lightolier, Shaper Prentalux from Cooper Lighting Solutions, and Philips Tailored Lighting. This single brand guarantees the quality, design excellence, and sustainability that unites the collections.

Salone del Mobile draws over 300,000 visitors per year to experience the best of exclusive design and high-quality products.
