The LG OLED Design Competition has been an international platform since 2013 providing designers, architects, and everyone who is interested in LG OLED light with an opportunity to apply OLED light to their designs from September 11 to November 30, 2017.

This year’s competition is specially endorsed by Red Dot and applications will be reviewed by a number of world renowned juries. The juries include the founder and CEO of Red Dot, Peter Zec and other renowned experts in each field of design and technology. Also, winners of the competition will receive a chance to exhibit their product designs at the “Light + Building 2018” with LG Display’s support on building the mock-up of the design along with a flight ticket to Frankfurt, Germany.

From 21 to 24 September, 2017, LG Display is opening up a booth in Design Junction 2017, London. At the booth, visitors are available to receive detailed information about the competition and LG Display has prepared 100 limited Flexible DIY Kits for the visitors.

With the theme “New Light of Life”, LG OLED Design Competition 2017 is categorized into three different concepts: Life, Human, and Flexibility & Simplicity.
Life: Incorporate the idea of “life” into your designs based on your own interpretation.
Human: Emphasize the natural illumination of OLEDs and propose a design in accordance with LG’s design philosophy, “Human Centric Care and Empathy”.
Flexibility & Simplicity: Emphasize the flexibility and simplicity of OLEDs and integrate your design into our modern day lifestyle.

This year, the categories for the competition are divided into “Lighting Design” and “Space Design” and the main materials are the flexible LG OLED light panels. 0.41mm thin and 20mm bending radius characteristics are expected to provide design freedom to participants.
