Hue Lightguide: Further models postponed indefinitely

Production has been stopped

At the beginning of September, Philips Hue introduced its new Lightguide series. Large glass lamps with a light tube inside. Three models were originally supposed to be launched in autumn: Ellipse, Globe and Triangular.

The launch was then postponed, later in December the first of three planned models appeared with the Hue Lightguide Ellipse. The impressive-looking light is available immediately for 99.99 euros, for example at Cyberport.

For the other two models, however, I have bad news: The Lightguide Globe and Lightguide Triangular have been postponed indefinitely. The manufacturer told

For Signify, the quality of its Philips Hue products has always been our top priority and we are very pleased to be able to offer an innovative lamp with the new Philips Hue Lightguide lamp in the Ellipse shape. Because the previously announced Philips Hue Lightguide lamps in the Globe and Triangular shapes have not been able to live up to this claim so far, we have decided to discontinue the production of these lamp shapes for the time being.

At any rate, it doesn’t sound as if anything is going to change in the near future. I am quite surprised about that, because according to my information, Philips Hue originally also planned to introduce two smaller Lightguide models.

The manufacturer explicitly points out that the Lightguide Ellipse, which has already been released, is not affected by the measures and will continue to be available in stores.

With its inner tube and reflective glass coating, Lightguide bulbs are a statement piece to match the modern home. This ellipse smart bulb gives you a glow of brilliantly colorful light, which you can dim to the perfect level.

  1. I was the one who reported earlier that my Triangle Bulb arrived with a cloudy film on the inside of the glass. However, the cloudiness has completely cleared up with use. If this is the aesthetic inconsistency they are talking about, it might have been temporary. I’m certainly glad I have one, I love the design, glad I didn’t return it!
