Eindhoven, The Netherlands - Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHI) has received four prizes at the Design For Asia Award (DFA) 2012 in the category Product/Industrial design.

 

Design For Asia recognizes companies and designers that ‘have achieved business success through good design that reflects, or has an impact on, the Asian lifestyle’. Winners for 2012 were announced in a festive ceremony on December 6 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.
 

Silver DFA honors were given to both the Philips Arcitone spot and the PicoPix Pocket Projector*. This is the fourth award in 2012 for the Philips Arcitone spot.

Pictures and videos can be played directly from a wide range of devices or USB-stick and the latest LED technology displays images with vibrant colours and high contrast.

 

DFA Merit Recognitions were awarded to the LivingColors Bloom and jointly to the PicoPix Notebook Projector* and PicoPix Multimedia Pocket Projector.  The soft shaped designed LivingColors Bloom offers colored light in myriad combinations and the PicoPix Notebook Projector* and PicoPix Multimedia Pocket Projector* impressed with their elegant, intuitive design, clever technology and ease of use1.

 

“Philips is pleased to be recognized by the Design For Asia Award which highlights the value of good design,” says Sean Carney, Chief Design Officer for Philips. “We are proud to be making a positive contribution in Asia through our products that strive to improve the quality of life through excellence in design.
