Gallery: Brilliant OLED Lighting Designs by Emory Krall

The TLO (Triangle Light Object, or Transparent Light Origami) panels were designed by Emory Krall for Universal Display to show how the colors of OLED are additive. The hinged design allows the triangles to twist and overlap each other. When you view the overlapping glowing panels, new colors of light appear. For example, red and green produce a yellow light. When the red green and blue panels overlap, white light is achieved. You can see a demonstration of this in a video.

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.
