Just seconds into researching the acronym OLED and I'm already into "organic semiconductors" and "light-emitting electrochemical cells." So without getting too bogged down in the technical details of this exciting new lighting technology, I'll just say that Organic Light-Emitting Diodes allow innovatively thin designs in lamps that produce even, diffuse, and far-reaching light. Just look at HullOled by TSG Essempio for Philips Lumiblade to see an exquisite example.
HullOled is an Innovative Luminaire with an Aerodynamic, Nautically-Inspired Shape
One of the great achievements of OLEDs is that they minimize the infrastructure necessary to produce light. They can thus be fashioned with extremely flat and thin profiles. HullOled uses this formal flexibility to create an unusually alluring luminaire that looks like the hull of a ship.
Constituted of 10 distinct Philips Lumiblade OLED panels, HullOled incorporates "10 organic arms" in a horizontal orientation that personifies movement. Some may see the hull of a ship or even a legion of airplane wings-I see the underbelly of some great argent oceanic beast, propelled across the depths with the rhythmic music of its fins.
The Philips Lumiblade design embodies the best of OLED technology, and HullOled is but one exciting example of "endless opportunities to create groundbreaking new lighting concepts... dramatic and unexpected ways to create atmosphere in a room."
