Sumitomo Chemical to Participate in Light+Building 2012 with 60-Color Polymer OLED Lighting

Sumitomo Chemical announced that it will participate for the first time in “Light+Building 2012”, one of the world’s largest trade fair for lighting and building technology, to be held in Frankfurt, Germany, in April 2012.

The Company will be running a booth at the trade fair, inviting the world-renowned Japanese lighting designer Motoko Ishii as its art director, where its polymer OLED lighting will be exhibited, with the theme “The Colors of Japan – The Colors of Harmony”, in an innovative attempt to replicate—by means of lighting—the elegant and refined colors of ancient Japan in a modern day setting of a Japanese traditional tearoom by using the world's most advanced polymer OLED technology.

Displayed at the booth will be large-scale lighting panels of about 10 centimeters square each, illuminating in sixty different colors, that are produced by coating everything except for the electrodes with printing technology. Varying shades of color will soothe visitors comfortably to the world of Japanese traditional colors from the distant past. Sumitomo Chemical is the first in the world to have produced successfully the large-scale lighting panels with the printing method in as many as sixty different colors.

In addition to OLED lighting capable of generating natural light that is soft and gentle on the eyes, polymer OLED lighting offers its unique advantage of producing a countless number of color shades as well as lessening an environmental impact that can be realized by the simplified manufacturing process, making it the perfect next-generation lighting technology.

Leading-edge OLED technology and the Japanese traditional culture of harmonious colors coming into play— Sumitomo Chemical’s polymer OLED lighting brings together the time-honored cultural heritage and the world-class technological excellence, in both of which Japan takes pride.
