Gallery: Brilliant OLED Lighting Designs by Emory Krall

OLED lighting is still considered an emerging technology, but Universal Display Corporation has been creating amazing concept products with these extremely efficient panels for over a decade. Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) are essentially a micro-thin stack of electrically-charged films sandwiched in between a substrate like glass or plastic. The Universal Display Corp scientists have developed a proprietary phosphorescent OLED technology (PHOLED), which is even more efficient than fluorescent OLED products currently available from companies like Philips and GE. We are really impressed with the work done by Emory Krall, Universal Display’s prototype designer, who excels at showing off the versatility off this astoundingly efficient and vibrant light source. Read on for a look at some of our favorite designs!

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.
