ET2 and Philips Hue Collaborate on Smart Lighting Collection
Lighting industry veteran, ET2 has partnered with Philips Hue to create a smart lighting collection consisting of four exquisite pieces for the home. The Friends of Hue program works to integrate Philips Hue’s innovative smart lighting technology into decorative luminaires to provide users with the utmost personalization of their surrounding atmosphere. ET2’s new Friends of Hue collection includes two round and two rectangular pieces, each with its own unique style.
The iCorona and iQ fixtures house the Philips Hue light inside a Matte White or Brushed Black ring. iCorona offers a variety of pre-set colorful scenes as well as the ability to change the color temperature and dim the lights. iQ’s custom formed diffuser evenly distributes that light throughout the entirety of the room. Both iCorona and iQ are available as pendants or as flush-mounted light fixtures.
iWood and iBar are the rectangular pendants in the line, and are available in a variety of color and size options. The iBar Friends of Hue collection was crafted with aluminum channels anodized in Brushed Aluminum or Brushed Black. Each piece supports a solid block of clear acrylic that creates a “dramatic lighting effect” for the 96 million potential color combinations. The iWood designs include solid wood frames surrounded by stainless steel trim. Color combinations include Wenge with Polished Chrome or antique Pecan with Brushed Champagne. Homeowners can construct the perfect warm ambiance for dining and easily switch over to a bright white light to illuminate a workstation.
“Our new collections focus on bringing design-focused lighting concepts into the new area of smart technology,” says Maxim Group Companies CEO Jacob Sperling. “With Philips Hue, our customers can control and personalize their lighting however they see fit. This is the direction of the market, and we’ve designed beautiful fixtures incorporating Philips Hue’s technology, so our customers have a larger selection of lighting fixtures to complement their smart homes.”
As the world’s leading residential smart lighting system, Philips Hue offers an easy-to-use app available on a smartphone or tablet for total wireless control whether at home or away. Each piece is also compatible with Amazon Echo, Apple HomeKit, and many other Zigbee protocol devices.
With the ET2 Friends of Hue collection, as with their 6,000 other creations, ET2 stands firm behind their mission to “treat customers and employees like family, and never settle for less than excellence.”
