The creation of a street lamp is a signficant design challenge. In addition to creating a robust fixture that can withstand the elements, there were strict criteria governing its performance. To tackle the challenge, METALAB partnered with Phillips.
Initially developed for Houston's East End Management District, METALAB drew inspiration from the surrounding community, the low-profile of Phillips LED technologies, and the promise of neighborhood renewal. The Ringo offers high performance energy efficient mid-level path lighting with simple elegant forms and a refined presence. Ringo also features cost effective and easily interchangable colored bands that help define the district’s identity. Phillips LED technologies provide state-of-the-art control, light quality, and energy efficiency.
Utilizing advanced LED technologies, this street lamp consumes far less energy than traditional luminaires that produce comparable light output, in part because LED’s project focused directional light. This results in less glare and light pollution, better visual recognition, and excellent color rendition. The efficiency is not only environmentally responsible, it provides great operational savings.
