German startup launches dedicated sales channel for OLED lighting

This is a sponsored post by Organic Lights

About a year ago, after talking to lots of people in the business, we spotted a gap in the OLED market. Whilst OLED was a term that was being bandied around as the technology that allowed lamps and lighting to move into a new generation, designers and enthusiasts were finding it difficult to get information on the available products and get hold of the panels and lamps themselves.

So, we created Organic Lights to offer a platform that brings everyone together to enjoy the brilliance of the lighting source of today. Organic Lights can unite designers to manufacturers to DIYers in order to share a common interest in OLED. We have the perfect mix of expertise, marketing power and a huge network of business contacts. We are the only solely OLED-based company in the World which means that OLED always takes precedence; the lamps and panels take pride of place and are not tucked in the back pages of a design catalogue. This feeds into our company philosophy that OLED technology deserves to be championed in its own right.
