While they focus more on the scientific aspects of light and how to best apply it for fields ranging from projection to petrol stations to healthcare the appointment of Rogier van der Heide as the first Chief Design Officer for Philips Lighting shows that they aim to expand even further. Rogier van der Heide is internationally recognized as a specialist in architectural lighting and his job as Chief Design Officer for Lighting and also as Vice President of Philips Design shows the company’s commitment to design.
