Iconic furniture designer Tom Dixon recently teamed up with electronics company Philips Lumiblade to create this stunningly minimalist line of super efficient OLED Lamps. Dixon’s new “Flat Lamp” lighting collection will debut at the Milan Design Fair this week, and combines Dixon’s polished aesthetics with the super efficient technology of OLEDS. OLEDs — Organic Light Emitting Diodes — are extremely energy efficient and as thin as a sheet of glass. This allowed Dixon to make the lamp casings extremely thin, saving materials and energy in the process.

Dixon’s “Flat Lamps” come in three different styles — strip, round and square. They are designed to be displayed through chandeliers, wall lamps, floor lamps or table lamps. Dixon is one of the first designers to incorporate OLEDs into mass-producible designs. We can wait to catch a glimpse of these suckers at the show! We’ll be reporting from the Milan all week, so keep it tuned to for all the best and the brightest green design from Milan Design Week.

    I think it’s because companies have been too focused in making OLED monitors and TV instead of a simple good ol’ light.

    Though I have seen tiny night lights made from probably the same tech.

    Wow, *finally*, someone has created a lamp using new technology (it’s still relatively new even if it’s not that new) in the way it was designed.
    Not as some bulb replacement or an other form pretending to be old technology but as thin, plates, pointing in the direction that light is needed rather than the ancient all-directions-of-the-sun!

    (sorry, I’ve been waiting a while for lights like these)
