“Acuity Brands, using OLEDWorks technology, intends to develop a series of affordable and innovative OLED luminaires for architectural lighting applications,” the companies said in a joint press release.
Acuity and OLEDWorks are not the only companies who see hope in driving down OLED costs. Last November, Holland’s Holst Centre and Germany’s Fraunhofer FEP together said they had created the world’s longest OLED, rolling a 15m (49.2-ft) version off a pilot production line at Holst facilities, portending cost reductions in roll-to-roll production.
In a separate development, OLEDWorks said it has entered into an agreement with Audi to develop automotive OLED lighting for the German car maker. Audi has collaborated with Osram previously on OLED-based exterior auto lighting.
