OLEDWorks has announced Bendoled - a flexible and conformable OLED lighting platform, uses Corning Willow Glass-based substrates.

According to OLEDWorks "Bendoled" combines feather-weight elegance with bold lighting functionality. The addition of Bendoled brings a new element to the functionality of OLED lighting and provides greater options for architects and lighting designers who are looking to explore new applications and solutions for lighting design.

OLEDWorks said limited-edition sampling of Bendoled will be available by October this year.

"OLEDWorks' unrivaled brightness is now available in a graceful form that truly inspires,"

"Only microns in thickness and grams in weight, Bendoled delivers the superb light quality and excellent color rending that is uniquely achievable with OLED. It has been a privilege to bring Bendoled to market in collaboration with Corning, whose innovative leadership in glass technology is complemented by outstanding teamwork."

David DeJoy, Chief Executive Officer, OLEDWorks

"We are excited to continue our collaboration with OLEDWorks by enabling the next generation of lighting solutions as Corning pursues a new market opportunity for Willow Glass."

"Light no longer has to stay locked up in a bulb, but can be freed to flow and flex around corners, curves, and crevices making it much easier to integrate into architecture, furniture, and appliances."

Dr. Dipak Q. Chowdhury, Division Vice President and Program Director, Willow Innovative Substrates, Corning Inc

Additional information

Willow Glass is a key component in this new lighting solution, enabling a thin and flexible hermetic barrier and substrate which helps protect sensitive components from damaging moisture and oxygen. It also acts as a structural barrier making it a supreme choice for encapsulating the organic light emitting materials unique to OLED.

OLED lighting continues to advance with improved performance, expanded formats and additional color temperatures. The inherent hermetic barrier properties of Corning's Willow Glass unlock the potential for conformable surface lighting without compromising the durability and lifetime of the lighting panel.
