In September 2017, Merck, OLEDWorks, OPVIUS and Kolon launched a new textile-based OLED lighting and OPV installation (called “Do we dream under the same sky”) at the first Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism.
Merck now brought the same installation to Frankfurt during the Light + Building 2018, and the company also gave us more details for this interesting installation.
This project, developed by New York artist Rirkrit Tiravanija and Frankfurt architects Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Müller, is a demonstration of combining advanced OPV and OLED technologies. The whole façade is 51 sqm in size – there are 403 OLED panels in there (7.23 sqm) and over 2,400 OPV panels. The panels are OLEDWorks’ Brite 2 panels, I believe these are the Brite 2 warm white (300 lumens, 57 lm/W, CCT=3000).
