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 Inhabitat.com for all the best and the brightest green design from Milan Design Week .
