Konica Minolta brought their color-tunable flexible OLEDs to L+B 2014, and now the company posted this video showing these new panels. The exhibition (which KM calls the Cradle Of Life) shows three design concepts by Takram design engineering. KONICA MINOLTA×takram design engineering 「Cradle of Light」 from takram on Vimeo . In the video you can see the rotating Irodori uses a layered spiral design that resembles peacock features, the small Ibuki uses two light-weight panels that seem to float in the air and the Habataki 2.0 seems like a bird fledgling leaving the nest.

German based lighting expert Hella showed a new automobile rear light module prototype that uses curved flexible OLEDs . The module uses 28 flexible OLED lighting panels (made by LG Chem ) that were bent so each is shaped differently and so it creates a unique 3D structure. Hella designed this module in collaboration with BMW. Hella says that because OLEDs offer light emitting areas (in contrast to LEDs which are spot lighting) they open new possibilities for lighting in and around a vehicle.

Philips showcased at the Light and Building 2014 new OLED panels, the FL300 and a new version of the GL350 Lumiblade Panel. Philips says that the FL300 Brite is the brightest OLED panel which is available on the market with up to 300 lumen at >50lm/Watt, now available in 3.000 Kelvin and end 2014 also in 4.000 Kelvin. The panel has a dimension from about 12x12cm, Philips want to introduce that bright panel also in different shapes. The panels are produced with thin film encapsulation for ultimate reliability. You can buy the Brite FL300 with three options with TFE, without wiring, with TFE and thermal backplate including wiring, and with TFE in housing including wiring. The panel is really bright and is ideal for applications in general lighting systems. If you use the panel with full brightness you got 10.000 hours of lifetime with 125 lumen 50.000 hours. Lumiblade GL350 THe second generation of the GL350 suggest 200 lumens and a high efficacy with 45lm/W with a long lifetime. The interior design industry love this 124.5×124.5 millimeter Lumiblade panel because of the natural light. Philips OLED roadmap suggest a efficiency > 90lm/Watt in 2015 and 130 lm/Watt in 2018.
A couple of days ago we reported that according to tests by DisplayMate , SDC’s new 5.1″ FHD Super AMOLED panel (used in the GS5 ) is a lot more efficient than Samsung’s previous generation panels (a 27% compared to the GS4 which is actually a little smaller). DisplayMate’s Raymond Soneira told us that Samsung said that the improvement mostly came from more efficient OLED materials. This is quite interesting, and according to my own checks, it seems that indeed Samsung is using new materials. In fact, my sources say that Samsung adoped new and improved phosphorescent materials.

It was a pleasure to visit Osram and Steven Rossbach at the Light and Building 2014. Osram suggest at the light and building efficient and stylish OLED luminaire for conference rooms, controlrooms, hotels etc. One of the OLED concept Luminaire was designed from Werner Aisslinger which are the Designer of the Year 2014 honoured by the Architektur & Wohnen” magazine. The luminaire use 16 square OLED next generation Orbeos Panels that enables luminaires to be developed with LED-similar efficacy. Osram told us that this new Orbeos panel generation is already more efficient than energy saving lamps. This lamp is state of the art OLED technology from Osram, Design light object for sophisticated surroundings, the performance improvement compared to predecessor generation 50-75 percent (lx, lm/W, h) Another great concept is a OLED lamp for conference/controlroom market. You can choose three height and can control this via your iOS/Android app. Check out our video to see how it works. This device has 126 SDW-058 OLEDs with diffusive and glare free light for workplaces.
OSRAM already stated in the past that OLED is the next technological development for car lighting , and the company sees OLEDs adopted in series production of new vehicles by 2016. At the L+B exhibition, Osram unveiled a new OLED Module for the automotive market, and the company’s OLED chief said that demand for organic solutions from the automotive sector will drive down prices and increase product innovation. The company are also showing their new panels at the event. Those panels offer 65 lm/W, 15,000 hours lifetime and output about 600 lux. To showcase those new panels, the company unveiled a new pendant luminaire designed by Werner Aisslinger. The luminaire uses 16 OLED panels.

LG Chem OLED Light Panels at Light and Building 2014 – Amazing new flexible OLED lighting panels from LG Chem
You Create, We light LG Chem OLED light was the slogan of LG Chem Light and Building 2014 booth. Erich Strasser was at the Light and Building event in Frankfurt to learn more about the goals and products from LG Chem. Not only at display in special television LG could be the number one, it looks like also in lighting the korean company made step by step to reach the goal. LG Chem showase many application with OLED lighting panels. One of the highlights was the “world largest” OLED lighting panel at 320×320 mm. This Model N6SD30 has a thickness of 1 mm, 3000 CCT(K), 60 lm/Watt, Flux (LM) 850, and a uniformity of >85 percent. The lifetime is about 40.000 hours. Why their lighting panels has with 80lm/Wat the best performance?
LG Electronics’ OLED desk lamp uses two LG Chem ‘s flexible OLED lighting panels and can be controlled (via Bluetooth) using a smartphone application. The application can be used to choose one of several light modes (for movies, readying, etc.) or dimming and even turn on or off at a predefined time. LG Chem’s flexible OLEDs are 210×50 mm in size (0.33 mm thick), and they offer a color temperature of 4,000K, efficacy of 55 lm/W and a brightness of 73 lumens. The CRI is 90 and the lifetime is 40,000 (LT70). LG Electronics unveiled the desk lamp in April 2014, but they did not reveal actual launch plans or pricing details.
