L+B 2018 OLED照明市場でもフレキシブルが本格化

OLED照明市場でもフレキシブルなデザインへの変化が本格化を迎えている。

Light+Building 2018ではLG Displayだけでなく、OLEDWorks、Sumitomo ChemicalもフレキシブルOLED照明を展示し、LED照明との差別化を図った。

特にOLEDWorksとSumitomo Chemicalは初めてフレキシブルOLEDパネルを公開し、多くの来場者から注目された。

OLED Worksは薄板ガラスを採用したフレキシブルOLEDパネル「Brite 3 FL300C」を公開した。スペックは1万時間と57 lm/W@8,300 cd/m2、または5万時間と63 lm/W@3,000 cd/m2となる。

Sumitomo Chemicalが公開したフレキシブルOLEDパネルは、PI基板を用いてソリューションプロセス工程で製造し、効率は50 lm/W@1,500 cd/m2、寿命は約2万時間程度である。

2社が公開したフレキシブルOLED照明パネルはプロトタイプで、現在量産を進めているLG Displayのフレキシブル照明OLEDパネルの性能である55 lm/W、3万時間と同様レベルだ。この2社がフレキシブルOLEDの量産を開始したら、フレキシブルOLED照明市場に大きな変化が起きると期待されている。

一方、OLED照明市場の先頭に立っているLG Displayは、昨年12月にOLED照明ブランド「Luflex」をローンチして以来、初めての展示会となるLight+Building 2018で、フレキシブルOLED照明で実現できる多彩なデザインの照明を展示し、来場者から大きな注目を集めた。LG OLED Design Competition 2017で受賞した6作品が展示され、フレキシブルOLED照明の特長を最大限に活かしたデザインによるLED照明との差別化が目立ったという評価が多かった。

[Light+Building 2016]LG Display to Showcase Cutting-edge OLED Light Products and Solutions

Hyun Joo Kang, Editor, OLEDNET140730_LGD로고_영문

LG Display announced today that it is showcasing its latest advanced OLED light products and solutions at Light+Building 2016, one of the leading global trade fairs for lighting and building services technology, in Frankfurt, Germany, from March 13th to 18th.

Eleven OLED light panels are being exhibited along with four solutions using the panels. LG Display is highlighting the key advantages of OLED light, including the design flexibility that makes it suitable for different applications and venues, as well as its supreme light quality which is closest to natural light, thereby making people feel comfortable and reducing eye fatigue.

The company is exhibiting four solutions using OLED light panels:

Flexible Solution Section

The flexible OLEDs can be used to create unique and creative decorative lighting fixtures. The creativity in design increases along with the length of the panels. The flexible OLED light panels are light-weight and unshatterable. There are applications using 200x50mm flexible panels and 406x50mm flexible panels. The main highlight in this section is an application using many 320x320mm flexible panels.

Transparent Connection Solution Section

The LG Display OLED light panel generates a floating light effect by attaching the panel to glass and providing power through metal mesh transparent conductive film. It can be applied to display cabinets, shelves, and furniture. Especially when it is applied to shelves at stores, the lack of heat preserves product quality while the lack of shadow makes them more visually appealing to customers. The simplicity of OLEDs opens up the possibilities of various designs and applications.

Mirror Solution Section

By embedding the OLEDs into mirrors, LG Display has created a solution that can have a variety of uses. It can be used as a mirror in upscale hospitality settings or as a unique display box in high-end retail stores. When other light sources are used in a mirror solution, they tend to make the mirror too thick whereas OLED keeps the mirror thin and also minimizes glare.

Module Solution Section

OLED light panels allow for easy installation in diverse settings. LG Display is introducing super-slim OLED light modules at the fair with a simple aluminum housing that connects multiple panels into each module, generating unique and sleek designs. The company is showcasing the module solutions in order to demonstrate how well OLED light can be applied to interior design and architecture. It is committed to develop other solutions in order to encourage more and more people to easily use OLED lights.
