Thin and lightweight
Highly efficient light emission and long-life
OLED is expected to make use of these characteristics for next-generation lighting technology.
A trial display case utilizing OLED lighting was installed in the museum on June 12, 2010.
OLED lighting has properties close to those of natural light, contains no ultraviolet rays that can damage works of art, and reduces glare for museum visitors by shedding the kind of soft light that comes through a paper screen. Since the lighting panels are extremely thin and emit light from their surfaces, they offer tremendous potential from a design perspective.
