Renowned architect and designer Ron Arad explored the possibilities of light, using LG Display OLED light panels. In support of a must-see exhibition at 100% Design, Ron Arad collaborated with Korean artist Zinoo Park.
Using LG Display's OLED light panels Ron has represented letters, phrases, thoughts, expressions and pictures on large plates of steel. In the exhibition at 100% Design (Design & Build Stand E808), through a soft and warm glow unique to OLED, each letter and picture was able to radiate and make an incredible, indelible impression. The concept revitalized new perspective in light, and allowed the visitors to explore the awe of light in a whole new dimension.
Zinoo Park, who graduated from Royal College of Art and is one of the leading designers in the fast-growing design scene in Korea, created a lighting sculpture titled "The Mirror of Orbit". Combining OLED with orbit structure which is connected to mirrors, his work expresses visual ambiguity of continuity and break in time and space.
Zinoo Park, who graduated from Royal College of Art and is one of the leading designers in the fast-growing design scene in Korea, said, "The new OLED gives designers the freedom to disregard the limitations of traditional lighting. The structural flexibility and the similarity to natural light give a warm feeling to anybody who experiences it."

Based upon the accurate understanding of human sensibility ergonomics, the art pieces presented are the combinations that effectively reveal characteristics of OLED light as a conveyance of natural lights.” He also added, “LG Display will continue to collaborate with artists, such as Ron Arad and Zinoo Park. LG Display is always opened to suggestions in building reference cases where we can show the positive features of OLED lighting by collaborating with artists, architects, designers and others."
