ReStore find in Landrum, SC. This lamp came in the upward accent light, so I swapped it for an LED.

These interesting Philips Directors emit light in all directions, with the brightest light coming from the top.

These lamps were really popular in several European countries, marketed mainly by Philips, Osram and Sylvania under the Superlux or Super Deluxe brands. They are mainly intended for pendant ceiling lights. Thanks to the opal back but pearl front, they deliver a soft beam angle of 200 degrees, and increase the downward light by 30% but without leaving the ceiling and upper walls in darkness, and without a bright spot on the floor as would be the case with a standard metallised reflector lamp. I believe it was around 1990 that Philips tried to market the same concept in USA under this Director brand, but it was not a great success.

My mother had once a Philips Superlux 150W lamp with K shape and opal back and pearl front. I didn't seen any beam coming from the front part of the lamp at all, and seen only 100% 360* spread of light. That why I thought until now that the name "Director" for this lamp by NA Philips, is a misnomer.
But The European version had Krypton, and this US Philips lamp don't have Krypton, but just Argon/Nitrogen.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.
