LG Display has announced that it will supply OLED panels to ilroom, a specialised home furniture brand of the Fursys Group, a leading office furniture company in Korea.
According to the announcement LG display said the desk light is separately attached to the desk shelf, and it is designed to produce highly uniform OLED light. LG Display's OLED lighting business has plans to build on this collaboration with ilroom to expand its furniture convergence applications.
In February 2015 LG Display drew much attention when the company installed 1,100 OLED panels as reading lights at the KwanJeong Library at Seoul National University (see LG Chem announces major installation of OLED lighting for Seoul National University).
The university adopted the new lighting because it offers excellent light quality, design differentiation with the thin, lightweight OLED panels, and reduces eye fatigue as the light waves are similar to natural sunlight.
According to an SNU survey, 91% of the students in the KwanJeong Library find the OLED reading lights eye-friendly, and 94% say it improves concentration.
ilroom's launch of the "OLED desk light" is similarly based on OLED light panels' design differentiation and excellent light quality.

The product is designed with two 213mm x 113mm OLED panels arranged horizontally. The panel helps improve concentration as it is a surface light source that offers superior light quality covering a large area with minimum shadow. It is also the most appropriate light source for a studying environment as it offers gentle light without any flicker.
ilroom's "OLED desk light" offers easy control with a touch button and has adjustable brightness with three settings. The "OLED desk light" is only 6mm thick even with its aluminium casing. The company was able to achieve this simple and modern design by using a super slim 0.88mm OLED light panel.
ilroom's "OLED desk light" is available at a retail price of KRW 220,000 (approx. US$ 182) in the company's 90 stores throughout Korea and on its website.
