OLEDs fascinate visitors at LUMINALE 2012 at the Palmengarten in Frankfurt a.M.
Area luminaires in exclusive and trendy design variants equipped with OLED light sources fascinate the visitors at the Palmengarten in Frankfurt. COMEDD (Centre for Organic Materials and Electronic Devices Dresden, branch of Fraunhofer IPMS) presents a selection of OLED luminaires during the LUMINALE 2012 (concurrently evening event with Light & Building 2012 trade show) to interested users, designers and manufacturers of luminaires. These luminaires are results of the collaboration with such renowned companies as Deutsche Werkstätten Hellerau, but also with designers as Irena Kilibarda. They show in an impressively way first design variants of these enchanting lighting technology and totally new applications, like dynamic light.
Prof. Karl Leo, director of COMEDD, is excited: “We at COMEDD are able to satisfy almost every wish of our customers with regards to different colors and shapes of the OLEDs. For example even transparent areas are possible, which are luminaires when switched on.”
Prof. Karl Leo and two other scientists has been awarded with the Deutscher Zukunftspreis 2011 (awarded by the German Federal President) for the research and development of organic materials.
OLEDs consist of thin layers deposited at glass or foil. The organic materials are carbonates similar to automotive coatings or colors at street signs.
