CUBE | OLED Luminaire by Markus Fuerderer

Home > Winners > #29311


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
CUBE | OLED

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Luminaire

INSPIRATION:
Depth, Transparency and Contrast of Light

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A light source comprised of multiple transparent OLED (organic light emitting diode) panel(s)/film(s), that are laminated in between optical crystal/glass/acrylic volumes.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Upon switch activation, this illumination monolith provides glare-free, omni-directional ambient light from the internally arranged transparent 2-directional OLED (organic light emitting diode) panels within a single compact volume. When deactivated (switched off), the monolith appears as transparent/translucent volume. The device itself may be utilized as stand-alone item or mounted as pendant or on a stem to position the light source as needed.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project was started in April 2013, it was registered with patent pending status" in June 2013 and a physical prototype is currently being designed.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Transparent power circuit paths are applied on the appropriate surfaces of the optical crystal/glass cubes. Transparent OLED (organic light emitting diode) panels are connected with the applied power circuits and casted in place with a transparent casting resin in between the surfaces of 2 optical volumes. This process is repeated in all 3 directions (X, Y, Z).

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
12 transparent organic light emitting diode (OLED) panels are arranged in an orthogonal coordinate system and laminated in between 8 optical/clear crystal glass cubes. Via transparent circuit paths applied on the inner glass cube surfaces, the assembled organic light emitting diode (OLED) panels inside the resin-laminated cube assembly are supplied with electrical power. When activated, the integral illumination system transforms this transparent "monolith" into an omni-directional light source.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research for this project was focused on the use of existing transparent OLED panels for illumination purposes. To date there aren't any luminaires existing that are based on transparent OLED technology. The Cubeoled design aims to combine an array of OLEDs in a pure, haptic element, that adds an intellectual dimension when activated.

CHALLENGE:
The most challenging part of purist/minimalist designs are the details: In this case, it is the technology of minimizing the visible parts of circuit paths and OLED bezels. We have benchmarked procedures and technology used for sandwiched LED glass to create a spatial element that emits light, but does not reveal the mystery of HOW it does it.
