Philips expands Friends of Hue range with the LivingColors Iris
Frankfurt, Germany – A new member of the Friends of Hue family has arrived from
Royal Philips, the global leader in light. The iconic Philips LivingColors Iris is the latest
way to create vibrant light experiences using Philips Hue. Following the release of the

been scored.
