Iconic furniture designer [1] Tom Dixon [2] recently teamed up with electronics company Philips Lumiblade to create this stunningly minimalist line of super efficient OLED Lamps [3]. Dixon’s new “Flat Lamp” lighting collection will debut at the Milan Design Fair [4] this week, and combines Dixon’s polished aesthetics with the super efficient technology of OLEDS [5]. OLEDs — Organic Light Emitting Diodes [6] — 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 [5] into mass-producible designs. We can wait to catch a glimpse of these suckers at the show! We’ll be reporting from the Milan [4] all week, so keep it tuned to Inhabitat.com for all the best and the brightest green design from Milan Design Week [4].
