The Neo Lamp is a table lamp with six six-inch by six-inch OLED lighting panels. The panels are mounted back-to-back, three on each side, so light is cast in all directions around the lamp, like a tradition table lamp using a bulb and shade. However, the light output of each side can be independently controlled using the dimmer switches located on either side, and the head of the lamp rotates, allowing more control over how the light interacts with the environment. There is also a push button power switch to turn the entire lamp on and off. It is anchored by a concrete base to prevent it from being top heavy.
The Moon Window demonstrates some unique features of OLED lighting: the ability to not only create a transparent lighting panel, but to also hide an image within the transparent panel. When off, the Moon Window appears to be nothing other than a normal glass-paned window, but when turned on, a glowing image of the moon appears as if by magic. Read the rest of this entry »
More than half of the light an OLED produces can become trapped within its glass substrate due the index of refraction of the glass, and a great deal of work in the OLED lighting industry is focused on finding ways of freeing this trapped light. While there are methods of doing this without adding much thickness to the panel, in the lab scientists often simply place a large glass hemisphere against an OLED panel as a simple way to extract the trapped light for testing. This was the inspiration for the Dome Lamp. Read the rest of this entry »
The Wireless Desk Lamp uses a paper-thin, steel-foil OLED panel. The panel is supported by a cross-shaped spring steel wire assembly anchored in a clear acrylic base. A copper ring cast into the base is a power-receiving antenna, which couples with a power-transmitting antenna located beneath the desk. Read the rest of this entry »
Designed for a program funded by the US Department of Energy, this modular system consists of OLED lighting units which can be connected edge-to-edge or via cable and a control unit with power and dimming controls. Read the rest of this entry »
