Signify today announced that its Philip Hue line of lights is gaining several new filament bulb options, which will be available in a variety of sizes.

Filament bulbs are bulbs that can be used with or without a lampshade, unlike other Hue bulbs that are designed for use primarily with lampshades. Filament bulbs can be viewed straight on and look attractive even when displayed in a naked lamp.

The Filament bulbs can be used over Bluetooth without a Philips Hue hub using the Philips Hue Bluetooth app, but if you have an existing Hue setup, the bulbs can also be added in the traditional manner and paired with your other Hue lights.

The Hue Filament bulbs are LED bulbs that are available only in a warm white light (2100K, 530 lumens) with an amber coating. The bulbs can be dimmed, but there are no color options.

There are three Hue Filament bulbs that will be available in the United States starting in October. There's a traditional A19 bulb that will be available for $24.99, a ST19 tube that will be available for $27.99, and a G25 globe that will be available for $32.99.

For more on the new Filament bulbs, check out the Hue website.

Don’t understand the trend :rolleyes: for these retro “filament” LEDs. Another ridiculous example of skeuomorphism.
How is it ridiculous? Traditional LED bulbs are pretty ugly and if you have lights around your house that are hidden inside of frosted glass or behind a lampshade, you probably will appreciate a nice looking bulb.

For American households which usually use overhead lights and ugly recessed kitchen spotlights, sure. However, in many EU and Scandinavian countries when light is more “accented” with several lamps (i.e. the bulbs are often more visible) then how the light bulb looks like does matter. This “coziness” feeling you get from a filament bulb or a candle light is unparalleled.

These are actually quite interesting. I missed that these are LED’s on first blush, but I see that they are, which makes it that much more interesting.

Yeah, they're new to the Hue lineup but LED's in this style are all over your local home improvement stores these days.
