This is the second time for Sumitomo Chemical to exhibit its products at the trade fair, following its first participation in 2012. Sumitomo Chemical will run a booth at the trade fair, inviting the world-renowned Japanese lighting designer Motoko Ishii as art director, where its dual-color emission polymer OLED lighting will be displayed with the theme “The Most Advanced Polymer OLED.”
Sumitomo Chemical’s exhibit, named “OLED COSMOS,” is formed by polymer OLED lighting panels, expressing the infinite expanse of the universe. Its design indicates unlimited possibilities of polymer OLED ever expanding into the future.
The lighting panels used for “OLED COSMOS” feature bright colors of light, in contrast to delicate Japanese traditional colors produced by the lighting panels Sumitomo Chemical displayed in the previous trade fair. The lighting panels are also extremely thin, which has been difficult to achieve for conventional lighting.
Sumitomo Chemical is the first in the world* to have developed technology to mass-produce dual-color emission OLED lighting panels where a single panel can be printed in two distinct colors based on the Company's highly advanced printing method. Following the exhibit at “Light+Building 2014,” Sumitomo Chemical will start marketing its polymer OLED lighting panels in April 2014.
