Product family information

The age of the bowl-shaped luminaire fitted with an inefficient mercury-vapor lamp is over. With CristalCity, Philips is opening up a new era with one of the most efficient alternatives on the market. The innovative CristalCity combines comfortable, high-efficiency lighting with a refined visual personality. Designed for installation heights of 3.5 to 5 m, this stylish, modern fixture enhances the ambiance in any streetscape, be it historical or contemporary. CristalCity has an exclusive light signature: the concentrated light beams create a hologram effect that animates differently depending on your perspective. A wide selection of optics and visual-comfort elements ensures glare-free illumination. CristalCity represents a future-proof investment. The dome of the luminaire, which incorporates the LED module and the driver, is fully replaceable so you can benefit from future developments in LEDs and their associated efficiencies.
