Takram presented the OLED (organic light emitting diode) installation “Luminous Wings” with Konica Minolta at the Lighting Fair, Japan’s largest lighting trade show; held in Tokyo in February 2013. Konica Minolta’s unique membrane production technology has enabled OLED light panels to be produced over a flexible plastic base. This 60 mm x 150 mm OLED panel is paper-thin and has only 1/10 of the weight of a glass panel of the same size. Using two flexible panels, Takram designed and developed nine “luminous wings” that flicker and flutter in sync with music.
THEME: “Luminous Wings”
“Luminous Wings” is the long-term demonstration theme selected to draw out the “ultra-thin”, “lightweight”, and “flexible” quality of OLED panels by “Symfos,” Konica Minolta’s next-generation lighting brand. As the first installation of this demonstration theme, “Habataki – Light, Leap to the Future” expresses how OLED panels, which are expected to bring innovation to the lighting culture, takes flight and leaps into the future.
