These new concepts are created for high-design hospitality, residential and retail environments at the upcoming 100% Design Fair in London. These concepts build further on the success of the first-ever commercially viable OLED concepts that Philips Lighting presented at this year’s Milan Design Week. The new innovations are the first result of co-creation processes that Philips is participating in to explore the many ways this easy-to-integrate and highly decorative form of solid-state lighting can be used.
All of the concepts presented at 100% Design are based on Philips’ Lumiblade technology, incorporating glowingly radiant OLED light panels. These unique light sources are a key focus of Philips’ current solid-state lighting research and development activities, and are making it possible to create completely new types of lighting experiences.
The four concepts represent widely varying types of implementation ideas that use OLEDs in uniquely different ways. The Lumiblade Markerlight is specially designed to
‘lead’ people on a voyage of discovery. In the Lumiblade Reflections concept, your own mirror image interacts with light in utterly unexpected ways. Lumiblade Mr Ed illustrates how OLEDs can give decorative images an extra dimension of high-design impact. The Lumiblade Glow concept presents light as an element that actually responds to you. All of the concepts can be used to create highly distinctive effects in hospitality and retail environments, as well as in homes.
