Buschfeld presented the O-Light for the first time at the Light + Building Fair 2016. Designed by Sebastian Herkner, O-Light is the world’s first OLED light (30 cm × 10 cm OLED) for application with a standard low-voltage system. It brings the light of tomorrow into galleries, offices, hotel lobbies or superior private residences today.
The O-Light was designed exclusively for mounting on LightLight® track, which was developed by designer and founder of the company, Prof. Hans Buschfeld. The new luminaire module achieves a luminous efficacy of up to 100 lumens per watt, depending on the version. The light emitted is diffuse, soft and glare-free, and generates practically no shadows.
O-Light does not generate heat and can therefore be installed in close proximity to heat-sensitive materials and art works. It combines the ground-breaking advantages of OLED technology with an ultrathin 3 mm housing made of black anodised aluminium. The modules can be mounted quickly and easily anywhere on the track, as required.
Designer Sebastian Herkner shared, “O-Light has been reduced to the essential: light and lighting. High-precision state-of-the-art minimalism. The OLED is surrounded by an anodised aluminium frame and can be mounted on buschfeld track, achieving a delightful floating effect.”
