A KUMOLED brings a natural atmosphere into your living room. Its effects recall the daylight that shines through the shōji paper of a traditional Japanese home, and changes in mood depending on the time of day and weather conditions. The KUMOLED combines the warm, diffuse illumination of the organic light-emitting diode, OLED for short, with an intelligent control system, and minimalist design.
«The focus of every KUMOLED consists of the effects of enliven light.»
Valentin Spiess, Innovator
The lamp’s reduced design is based on dual-faced OLEDs shaded with Japanese shōji paper, graceful metal connecting elements, and a base of wood or corian. A KUMOLED has much in the way of technology to offer, too, although this remains quite unobtrusive. Using an integrated sensor, the fixture assesses the ambient lighting conditions, as well as having the capacity to interpret weather data from the internet. It engenders unobtrusive, animated illumination and simultaneously ensures that the amount of light in the room remains constant. This results in a natural, dynamic effect that creates a pleasant atmosphere in your living room.
KUMOLED is based on the expertise and experience gained in the field of OLEDs by the Swiss firm iart. In the context of a research project sponsored by the Commission for Technology and Innovation of the Swiss Federation, prototypes of interactive lighting fixtures were produced in 2015. Since then, iart has devoted itself to this technology and developed a number of installations in the field of retail sales and hospitality. Now, with KUMOLED, we are launching into the lighting fixtures market.
KUMOLED lamps are based on the patented «infolight» principle, with the aid of which visible animations can be achieved while maintaining constant light emission. The amazingly thin design – double-faced lamps of only 4.2 mm thickness – is enabled by OLEDs with a wiring aperture developed in conjunction with OLEDWorks. With the aid of a sensor that measures brightness, light quality, color temperature, and contrast in the vicinity of the lamp, lighting animations can be created in a context-oriented way. The operation of KUMOLED fixtures is based on FLOKK, a control matrix for intelligent lighting.
KUMOLED lamps are now available for pre-order. As soon as fifty orders for a specific model are received, the lamp will go into production and be delivered within a three-month period.
