Philips LivingColor Lamp Unique Design

The LivingColors lamp has a highly distinctive appearance. It's beautifully tough transparent surround is flat on the bottom to ensure stability when the lamp is placed on a flat surface.

It won't be easy to decide the best place for this lamp...whether it's a kid's bedroom or a spacious lounge, a cosy bedroom or a posh drawing room, you will love to place it every where… it will stimulate the environment and everybody will simply love it.


The lamp is around 20 cm high


3AAA batteries are required. These are included with the lamp.

Cable and Adaptor

The translucent power cable is 2.5 metres long. It is designed to be connected to the LivingColors power adaptor, which reduces the voltage to just 5V

Philips LivingColor Lamp with Remote
Demo Mode

If you disconnect and then reconnect the power supply, the lamp quickly runs through its whole colour repertoire.

Furthermore when the lamp is on, if you hold down the on button for around 10 seconds whilst pointing it at LivingColors the lamp will automatically go into the colour loop mode.

Optimum Distance to Wall

Place the LivingColors lamp 0.5 to 1 metre away from your wall for the best effect.

Guarantee and Service

The LivingColors lamp and remote control are guaranteed for 1 year. Unfortunately the LED's are not replaceable, however the life span of the LED bulbs are 8-10 years based on 1.5-3 hours usage per day.
No Heat

As the lamp does not emit any heat, you can keep it on for as many hours as you like.


Cleaning this lamp will never be a problem because of its smooth surface. The lamp may be cleaned with a clean, soft, dry cloth. Cleaning agents should not be used.

Philips LivingColors

Philips Remote control

The intuitive remote control allows you to switch the LivingColors lamp on and off, dim or change the colour effect from anywhere in the room.

Radio Controlled

The remote control works on radio frequency (not an infrared beam). This means you don't need to point it directly at the lamp to change the colour effect

Colour Spectrum

By turning the colour loop on, you can display an almost infinite variety of colours.

Colour Saturation

The "colour saturation" button enables you to adjust the amount of white mix allowing you to create the colour tone you desire.

Light Intensity

You can increase or reduce the light intensity by using the dimmer button.

Connection Option

You can connect up to 6 LivingColors lamps to the same remote control. Just place the remote control close to the Philips brand name on the front of each lamp, and hold down the "on" button until the lamp flashes 3 times. The lamp will then operate off this control and be in sequence with the other Livingcolor lamps.


The remote control "remembers" the last setting you chose, and displays this the next time you switch the lamp on.

  • 1x Philips LivingColors LED lamp

    I heard about this lamp and dismissed it as a trashy cheap sounding toy, but I was in Dublin recently and saw one in operation in a philips shop. It was actually kind of nice and because you can turn down the intensity of the colours a lot, it really manages to create a lot of different moods.

    When I got it back home it was even better, in the evenings, in our white painted apartment, it could totally transform the look of the place. Light blues, deep greens, or hellish deep red, whatever the colour or intensity you want with the remote it only takes seconds to get it.

    The lamp is nice and heavy, although a little top heavy, and the guy in the shop told me there was a stand for it but there was nothing in the box. The design is very Apple, and the remote is gorgeous even on it's own, with the glossy white finish and round spectrum to play with. It's also not infra-red, so you don't need line of sight with it.

    I thought the price was pretty high, but now I'm starting to convince myself that one or two more wouldn't be such a bad purchase. Very recommended!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Superb moodlighting!!! 15 Feb 2008
    Verified Purchase
    I bought Philips LivingColors as a Valentine gift for my girlfriend just yesterday for her bedroom which is not very big. She is absolutely thrilled by it.

    This is an amazing product, & it really changes the ambience of the entire room!! You can play around with the remote (which is radio controlled, so you don't have to point it towards the lamp!) to get the precise colour you want, with its 16 million options.

    The product itself is a beauty and can adorn any setting. Philips has a winner here.

    Every now & then, my girlfriend changes the colour to reflect her mood, & I have to guess if she's angry, or sad, or naughty, or happy. The lamp doesn't get hot at all, even if you leave it on for hours.

    I have not found any negatives yet. It's a bit expensive, but worth it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous colours and fun for all the family 22 Nov 2008
    By Emma
    My husband bought me this for my birthday - and I love it! We've put it in the bedroom and I have the "zapper" on my bedside table. In the morning I turn it a bluey colour to help us wake up (circadian sensor), in the evening I have it on a dull orange as we get changed for bed (no circadian hit). If we want to read in bed, we just about can with it desaturated to white, though it's not really bright enough for long-term reading (and you couldn't light your living room with it).

    Our 2-year-old son loves it too. When he climbs in our bed in the morning he always asks for the remote, plays with it and shouts out the colours.

    I also took it along to a physics course my friend teaches - it is an excellent way to explain to people how you can make yellow light out of red and green. It's not really designed to provide white light though - the colour rendering is not great when it's on white (because there are bits of the spectrum missing "between" the LED emittance bands). This means you shouldn't use it as room illumination when you might have to recognise colours in what you're doing.

    But as fun mood lighting it's great! And a superb present to buy a woman for Christmas!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Not cheap but worth it perhaps 12 Nov 2008
    By marcoscu TOP 500 REVIEWER
    Verified Purchase
    I was somewhat offput by the cost at first but Amazon cut the price and I decided to buy one and have not since regretted it.

    Firstly, don't think of this as a light source, it is not, it's designed for mood lighting in an otherwise darkened room. The best way to use it, at least for me, it is to locate it in a corner in a room with white or plain walls angled upwards. You can then just keep on for a pleasant moody atmospheric lighting changing it as the fancy takes you or just allowing it to cycle through its' auto setting.

    If you have the money for it you can buy up half a dozen of them and they will work together to create ( I imagine) a stunning effect.

    Remember that the LED light source is non replaceable and the unit itself, which is about the size of a large melon, is fairly delicate so it needs to be carefully handled.

    If you are looking for some mood lighting for a special room then this would be a great buy, although a cheap one.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great lamp 19 Oct 2007
    The price may seem a little steep but this lamp is well worth it, the effect of changing the hue and saturation of the colours really compliments what effect you are after.
    The lamp can also cycle through lots of different colours automatically. The remote control is a joy to use, simple, fun and neat looking too.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant and ambient mood lamp 26 Oct 2007
    This is a great lamp. I had toyed with mood lighting but the electrical fitting and overall cost put me off. This is a great and more affordable option. Can display just about any colour with varying intensity it really is infinite the colour you can have. The LED's are quite bright so place it with the LED's facing the wall or object so you dont catch the brightness in the corner of your eye! I put it illuminating a giant wooden parrot I've got. Scary scary atmosphere when watching Resident Evil in gory red!! Though it may seem pricey its certainly a great buy that makes a huge difference to the atmosphere of any room its used in. You'll wander what life was like without one or two of these puppy's!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Mood changing 5 Jan 2008
    I was lucky enough to receive this as a Christmas present and am delighted. The lamp looks very special and succeeds in setting the mood in my lounge by control over the brightness of the light and the colour output from it. Physically the lamp looks like a glass sphere with a beige coloured horn inside it - it might pass in some quarters as a piece of modern art. The glass sphere is flattened slightly on one side to make it stable plus a small stand is supplied. Power for the lamp comes from a low voltage mains adaptor.

    The (radio) remote control gives you control over the functions of the light and you can use it to mix the colour palette rather like in some software programmes - the light output from the lamp being made up from mixing the output from a series of primary coloured (but non-replaceable) LEDs. The level of brightness can also be controlled from the remote together with the on/off functions. In summary, an unusual and innovative product that will have a significant practical impact in most home environments. Well done Philips!
