OLED LIGHTING international design competition




OLED: Change the way we see the Light

OLED is a new light source that also possesses unprecedented qualities of light,light being an element of our natural and built environment which affects our emotions as well as our physical health. 


the yearning for more ‘good quality light’ to surround us is apparent and the application of OLEDs can assist this, unfortunately, this means of illumination is still judged only by conventional evaluation standards that do not bring justice to this eco- and human-friendly light source. this is understandable since we have never had such an option… until now.


designboom in collaboration with LG CHEM and LG electronics presents the OLED  LIGHTING international design competition, inviting the creative and design community to develop commercially viable OLED LIGHTING applications for the current market.LG CHEM is currently the sole company producing OLED panels that are at performance levels good enough for general lighting so this is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to partake in developing  the first generation of OLED lighting products (for general lighting applications), and to eventually “Change the way we see the light.”
