A silver winner of the LG OLED Design Competition, the Versailles Luxury Chandelier by Alexandre Boucher mixes history with the future. It uses flexible OLED technology to create a chandelier that visually stays true to its roots, mimicking the overall silhouette, but rather than using bulbs to illuminate the massive lighting fixture (and glass/crystals to disperse the light), the Versailles Chandelier lights up itself, thanks to the properties of OLEDs.
Suffolk ResidentFit to be seen in any palace ballroom, the Versailles chandelier has a luxury-meets-steampunk appeal. Paper-thin, and extremely energy efficient (courtesy the LEDs), the chandelier manages to look modern and vintage both at the same time. It may not be as intricate and ornate as its ancestors, but it definitely isn’t something your eyes could ignore!
Gilberto Ceriani and Anna Szostak from the Netherlands created an eye-catching design called ‘Tensione Evolutiva’ with flexible Luflex panels. They demonstrated the beauty of flexible Luflex panels and the modular design can be created into a small product such as a table lamp or a big product such as a wall installation.
Last year, Luflex hosted an international competition called “LG OLED Design Competition 2017” with the theme ‘New Light of Life’. The competition was specially endorsed by Red Dot and the special opportunity was provided to the 3 winners in the 2 categories; Lighting Design and Space Design. Total 6 winners grabbed a chance to show prototypes of their own designs at the upcoming trade fair “Light + Building 2018”. Let’s check out the amazing designs and prototypes of the winners.
Richard Stone from the United States of America won 1st place for the Lighting Design category with the design ‘Interwoven Luminance’. The design, inspired by a simple weave pattern, highlights the flexibility of flexible Luflex panels and also demonstrates the ups and downs, connections and losses in ‘Life’, which was one of the keywords for the competition.
