Note (9)

ORGANIC LIGHT EMITTING DIODE (OLED)

  • surface light source--light is 2mm thick
  • able to light space like natural light
  • SOFT on the eyes
  • direct lighting--100% of light produced is used
  • SOURCE and LAMP are one--the source itself emits light
  • made from 2 plates of glass, water, and organic compounds
  • BLACKBODY lighting--work with architects in hotel lobbies, restaurants, airports

I was amazed by the large scale of these lighting displays made up from multiples of small singular lights. To me they are whimsicle and luxurious, and individually they are surprisingly sleek. These two things, so opposite (small lights to make large lighting display), provide contrast and excitability.
