Product Monday: Rollercoaster OLED Luminaire by OSRAM
OSRAM is introducing a new OLED luminaire, called the Rollercoaster for its interesting architectural form, that utilizes transparent OLED panels (30 of them, 18-cm x 6.5 cm, operating at 20 lumens/W, with a transmission or transparency of 57%). The company is planning to begin mass producing these panels in 2014.
The luminaire has the appearance of a glass and metal sculpture in the OFF state and is transformed into a luminous element of design when switched ON, reminiscent of a roller-coaster with its möbius form.
OLEDs are expected to be a primary choice for transparent, wide-area light sources in the future.
