OLED – the future of lighting today

OLED the future of lighting today

For the first time in the history of lighting, consumers can enjoy an entirely new form of light. Measuring just 1.8 millimeters in thickness, Lumiblade OLED has its own characteristics that leave everything seen until now in the shadows. As soon as it is turned on, the entire surface of the OLED delivers pleasant, non-dazzling light at a quality that other light sources and systems cannot achieve.

With its Lumiblade OLEDs, Philips is changing the way we all experience light. OLEDs are nothing less than a revolution in light and the future holds even more fantastic possibilities in store for this flat light source.
