Ten thousand Panasonic LED light bulbs used to light up chandeliers and under the eaves of Prague Castle
Panasonic’s LED light bulbs have been highly appraised in eco-conscious Europe for their excellence in energy efficiency, long lifespan as well as outstanding design. They were chosen to replace around 10,000 incandescent light bulbs used to light up chandeliers and under the eaves of Prague Castle, helping make the UNESCO World Heritage site in the Czech Republic environmentally friendly and easy to maintain with its historic atmosphere kept intact. The replacement of the incandescent bulbs with energy efficient LED bulbs has led to energy savings of around 77%.
In the 2013 Japanese Invention and Innovation Awards organized by the Japan Institute of Invention and Innovation, Panasonic’s clear-type LED lamp received the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Award for the “design of a light emitting diode lamp that cultivates an eco-friendly culture in the world.” This product has also received many other coveted design awards, such as the iF Design Award, the Red Dot Design Award and the Universal Design Award in Germany, the IDEA Award in the United States and the Good Design Award in Japan.
