Flat, free frankfurter

South Korean giant LG used Frankfurt’s recent Light+ Building trade fair to showcase its latest product and, like the city’s eponymous sausage, it’s got a bend to it. The firm has developed a 0.32 x 0.32m OLED panel that connects to others to create a single surface of consistent light. The panels are flexible and unshatterable, so bending OLEDs around physical forms becomes possible. Forget Corb’s dictum of architecture as ‘the masterful, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light’, how about the actual masses as light?
