OLED Lighting Curtain for Merck

Light is not always the same – and in most cases it is even more than light. This is especially true of light created using organic light-emitting diodes, known as OLEDs. The book “Lighting Up the Future – The Emergence of OLED” sees it-self as an attempt to describe this “more”, the special or unique character of OLED light. With his “OLED Lighting Curtain” Sebastian Herkner, a young product designer from Offenbach, who has already received many prizes, international ones among them, transcends the limits of classic luminaire design and radically exploits the two-dimensional quality of OLED light in creating his lighting curtain.
