OSRAM and Lighting Designer Ingo Maurer Introduced OLED Table Lamp

OSRAM and celebrated lighting designer Ingo Maurer have unveiled a revolutionary lighting application based on organic LEDs (OLEDs) at the Light+Building Fair in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Ingo Maurer is the first to use OLEDs from OSRAM in a functioning table light.

The limited-edition light, known as "Early Future," shines with tiles directly from the OSRAM laboratory and demonstrates the enormous potential of using OLEDs to create future applications with eye-catching illumination and design elements.

OSRAM Opto Semiconductors made prototypes of organic light emitting diodes available to the designer for his exclusive creation."We are proud that our OLEDs have inspired such a renowned artist as Ingo Maurer to create such an exciting work of art. 'Early Future' is a vision that has become reality. It gives us a glimpse of just how versatile organic OLEDs can be in terms of their design options and applications," said Martin Goetzeler, CEO of OSRAM.

Ingo Maurer used OLED tiles with an area of 132 x 33 millimeters for his creation. For Maurer, unusual design is not an end in itself. "'Early Future' represents an important stage in the transition from abstract object to functional designer lighting," he said. Maurer has been shaping developments in light-as-art and lighting design for many years. In 1966 he exhibited the designer luminaire Bulb which has been on exhibit in the New York Museum of Modern Art since 1969 along with other works of his. Through the years, Ingo Maurer has received numerous awards for his avant-garde work with light.
