ORBIK: Home design experts in lighting solutions

With the rising electric bills that we experience every month, consumers are starting to look for all possible means to lower it. However, as much as we resist the temptation of turning on our air conditioning units in this time of the year which is summer, the tropical heat is just too much our mortal bodies can bare. So if there are certain electrical appliances in the house we cannot sacrifice not to use, there are also some we can at least lessen the consumption. 

ORBIK bulbs in various lumens and wattage...
Last year, my wife and I decided to do some saving measures in order to cut the cost of our monthly electrical bills. So, we started replacing all our incandescent light bulbs with LED bulbs little by little, because LED bulbs are more pricey compared to the regular ones. After a few months, we already notice a significant cut down to our Meralco bills, considering that we still have other areas in our house which still has the old bulbs that need replacing.

Last week, I was invited to attend a media event on light bulbs. ORBIK, the country’s leading distributor of high quality LED lighting solution presented the importance of lights in adding not just efficient illumination but also beauty to the interior of the house. Orbik showcases their top of the line light bulbs, each has a distinct use and effectiveness to a particular place depending on the size of the room and its purpose. 

Arch. Conrad Onglao and Ms. Sam Oh...
For Arch. Conrad Onglao, lighting serves different purposes: accent lighting to highlight artwork, indirect lighting to create mood, or task lighting on desks or above kitchen counters where clear light is necessary. There are many ways Onglao applies lighting so that function and design complement one another. “A bedroom should have soft and warm lighting while an office space has bright white lighting to keep one alert. There is no blanket lighting solution for all spaces.” Most Orbik bulbs have both warm white (yellowish feature) and daylight (crisp white color) options.

LED bulbs emits less heat, so you can actually touch it while its turned on...
In the event, the host Ms. Sam Oh even encourage the audience to touch the lighted bulbs around us and surprisingly, they were not hot at all. That’s one of amazing feature of LED because it emits very little heat, thereby adding to the cool temperature of the room. 

Orbik Bluetooth Speaker LED bulb...
Another cool models of light bulb ORBIK has is the Bluetooth LED bulb with speaker. This light bulb has a built in speaker where you can actually play music in your smart phone and listen to the music through the light bulb itself. It has even a cool feature where you can dim the light remotely while you are changing the music via the remote control that comes along with it. 

Six watts Orbik LED bulbs...
“We have a full range of LED bulbs and other lights that assure energy efficiency,unlike other brands, we don’t focus on  the priceof the product, but on what kind of light functions should be needed.” says Jam Chan, Marketing Director of Orbik LED light bulbs. “We at Orbik like to consider ourselves as light experts because we want to educate consumers about LED light bulb use.”

Nine watts LED Bulbs...
Replacing the old incandescent bulbs in your house LED lights can be a little bit costly but in the long run, LED can be cost efficient because it uses less electric current and the diodes will last for years, much longer than the incandescent lights we normally use. 

Vintage LED light bulbs...

Chan says, “Your room can be transformed in the switch of a single light bulb. But with low quality bulbs, you’ll find yourself more hassled than benefited with the transformation if you have to keep changing it! This is where LED makes a difference.” The energy-efficient bulb is touted for its low environmental impact and cost-effectiveness as its outdated predecessor for lasting over 3 times longer. Going LED means saving money, effort, and the environment – it’s a win all-around!
