philips used OLED’s to produce four lighting concepts; table-top, standing, wall-mounted and ceiling luminaires. each concept features a stylish armature, or ‘blade’, which holds a number of ultra-thin OLED light panels. when not in use, the OLED panels have a smooth, mirror-like quality; but as soon as the luminaire is switched on, the panels start to glow. the blades integrate LEDs for functional light. what’s more, the luminaire reacts directly to your presence and movements, turning lighting into interactive art.

as soon as you walk into a room, the ceiling light responds to your presence, at first in only the central panels, and then spreading out along the blade. as you move nearer the quality of light transforms to providing direct and functional up and down illumination.

the table-top luminaire glows when the blade is tipped.

when the wall mounted blade is moved slightly away from the wall, the ambi-light optic LEDs are activated, washing the wall with soft light. if the blade is pulled out further, and angled away from the wall, the ambi-light begins to fade, and the OLEDs on the front of the blade instead start to cast a gentle, decorative light.

the double-sided nature of the OLEDs standing luminare gives considerable flexibility when creating decorative light and the blade can be rotated in either direction.
