We’ve seen lots of innovative applications for OLEDs lately — Ingo Maurer’s Double C-Future chandelier [1], Tom Dixon’s OLED flat lamp [2], and now Jason Bruges’ Mimosa, a dazzling piece of art that uses Philips OLED lumiblades [3] to form flower-like light petals that open and close in response to onlookers. According to Bruges, “The piece was inspired by the Mimosa family of plants, which change kinetically to suit their environmental conditions.” Want to check out Mimosa firsthand? It’s currently on display at Superstudio Piu [4] in Milan, Italy.
