    Clean, beautiful LED light


    Enhance your home interior and bring colours to life, with high quality light of Philips LED. Philips LEDs have a high Colour Rendering Index (CRI), meaning that these bulbs light up objects in their true and natural colour. The light output remains stable throughout the lifetime of the bulb. You’ll enjoy beautiful light for years to come.

    What is the Colour Rendering Index?


    The effect of a light source on colour appearance is measured in the colour rendering index (CRI), on a scale of 0-100. Natural outdoor light has a CRI of 100 and is used as the standard of comparison for any other light source. The CRI of Philips LED lighting products is always higher than 80, close to natural light.
