ARCHITECT and Architectural Lighting editor Elizabeth Donoff reports that on May 16, Philips Lighting officially announced its new company name, Signify.

The change comes after several years of transition as the company repositions itself in the lighting market and how it will focus on the creation of lighting products and solutions.

From the press release:

Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, has today launched its new company name, following the amendment of the company’s articles of association changing its name from Philips Lighting N.V. to Signify N.V.
