Brilliant OLED Lighting Designs by Emory Krall

by , 08/13/10

These “Baby Displays” are used by Universal Display Corporation as technology demonstrators when speaking to new customers. They are used by electronic giants like Samsung and LG, which utilize OLEDs in everything from hand-held devices to TVs. They also work with companies that are not consumer electronic manufacturers, such as Armstrong, who is developing OLED ceiling tile lights.

This beautiful desk lamp has very even, diffused OLED light source. The delicate form is achieved with the amazing 1/8” thick panel. The head can rotate a full 360 degrees, and spins on thin carbon fiber supports. Better yet, it is even dimmable.

We love these elegant concepts by Philadelphia-based designer Emory Krall so much that it is easy to downplay that these are first and foremost sustainable designs. PHOLED technology is the future of efficient lighting and displays. Let’s hope Universal Display’s technological rigor paired with Krall’s inspiring concepts will make PHOLED products a reality that is not too far off.
