The Blackbody OLED fixture project is an ongoing exploration of fixture design language for OLED lights. OLEDs, or Organic Light Emitting Diodes, is a new type of lighting technology that Blackbody has perfected. The lights don’t emit a significant amount of heat, lending themselves to new and unique uses. Also, unlike traditional bulb-based lights, users can look directly at an OLED light without hurting their eyes, which means the lit surface of the unit can be exposed. Blackbody traditionally focuses on retail lighting, so this explorative project offers new and unique solutions for that sector as well as some divergent concepts for general consumers as well.
