Did you know… in 1933, Philips had become the world's largest manufacturer of radios. Then, in 1950, it launched the Philishave, an iconic battery shaver with rotating heads which was a spin-off from its research into battery powered dynamos. Then, in 1963, Philips launched the compact audio cassette tape and set the standard which is still used today. Twenty years later, Philips again revolutionised how the world listens to music when it launched the CD and it also invented the first home Video Cassette Recorder in 1973.
Design plays an important part in all Philips research and development. Its approach is to go way beyond aesthetics, and in 2000, Philips opened HomeLab in the Netherlands - a fully functional home laboratory where researchers can study people's interactions with technology and designs. Today, Philips specialises in producing energy-efficient LED products and has recently produced Hue, the market-leading ‘smart home’ range aimed at any homeowner looking to modernise their home.
