Gallery: Brilliant OLED Lighting Designs by Emory Krall

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.

These light fixtures explore ways to produce panels that are 6” square, which is much larger than what is currently commercially available. Conductive strands are used in a graphic way to bring power to all parts of the panel.

PHOLED technology is patented by Universal Display Corp and is four times as efficient as is fluorescent OLED competitors. It can operate at very low voltages, and is cool to the touch. The panels can range in color from deep red and greens to vivid blues.
