OLED Installation in the Fuori Salone show in Milan
Verbatim has launched the world's first commercially available, colour tunable organic LED (OLED) lighting panels at the Fuori Salone show in Milan. The OLEDs are based on unique materials technology developed by Verbatim's parent company, Mitsubishi Chemical Holding Group which, as one of the world's major chemical companies, has over 50 years' experience in developing lighting materials. Full-scale production of OLED panels will start from July. The video shows how Verbatim demonstrated the creativity and beauty of colour tunable and white tone tunable OLED panels, thought to be the world's largest at approximately 14cm x 14cm*. Its display, created by lighting designer Satoshi Uchihara, was located in the Design Library srl, Via Savona 11, 20144 Milan. The large surfaces of Verbatim OLEDs, branded VELVE, produce a soft light, free from glare and with deeply saturated colours. The OLEDs, which do not contain hazardous materials, are very efficient, producing 28 lumens per Watt output at 1000 cd/m2 with accurate colour rendering (high CRI). Colour tuning and white tone tuning allow the mood of a space to be varied to suit its function at the time. For example, it may be changed from a workspace requiring bright, cool light, to a place of relaxation with warm, subdued lighting. The panels are designed for general lighting, furniture lighting and other applications. Verbatim sells the OLEDs directly to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in these sectors.
