ATLANTA — Acuity Brands, Inc. announced plans to work exclusively with OLEDWorks, a manufacturer of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) lighting technology, on an expanded product portfolio of OLED luminaires. Acuity Brands, using OLEDWorks technology, intends to develop a series of affordable and innovative OLED luminaires for architectural lighting applications.
OLEDs are a thin sheet of light that create a gentle and diffuse illumination that is calm, soft and comfortable to view. Their ultra-thin form offers excellent visual quality and they are a natural fit for interior applications that can help enhance the occupant experience and the aesthetics of the space itself.
“We have worked with OLEDWorks and their OLED technology for years, and we’ve found it to be the superior OLED technology in the market. We’re excited about our collaboration,” said Rick Earlywine, Acuity Brands Lighting Senior Vice President, Architectural Lighting Solutions. “Over time, we see an advent of even higher luminance OLED panels and more form factor choices that will create interesting options for specifiers to light architectural spaces. This is a major step forward in forging new paths for OLED lighting.”
“Acuity Brands has been able to anticipate trends in the general lighting industry, and it was an early adopter of incorporating OLED technology for luminaires, capitalizing on the unique benefits OLEDs offer,” said Dave DeJoy, CEO of OLEDWorks. “They continue to be the leader in developing and delivering innovative, impactful lighting solutions. We are proud to be a partner with Acuity and look forward to advancing OLED lighting technology together. We bring to the table our innovative manufacturing facilities in Rochester, NY and Aachen, Germany, coupled with an exceptional concentration of pioneering OLED talent and proven technology advances in research and development.”
Acuity Brands will be showcasing the Olessence™ Slim luminaire from Peerless®, a new OLED product featuring OLEDWorks technology, at the 2019 LIGHTFAIR International trade show, May 21-23, in Philadelphia, PA (Booth #1201). Olessence Slim luminaires balance OLED and LED lighting technologies to maximize beauty and performance in lighting while optimizing energy savings and cost.Tagged with Acuity Brands, luminaires, OLEDWorks
