OLED LIGHTING International Design Competition

genie oled by Mike Garner from usa

designer's own words:

Genie OLED is a simple and elegant expression of the flexible OLED panel’s inherent nature. To turn Genie on you simple slide the switch down, flexing the panels and activating the power. Magically, a glow of light is emitted from the inner layer of this structure where there was none before. Genie uses two LG flexible OLED panels to create an intriguing and intimate object, not unlike a candle, which would be used as a focal point for conversation and relaxation.

It is envisioned that Genie could also be made available in a battery powered version, eliminating the need for a cord and allowing for more flexible placement on tables, etc.
