Based on the pad-like fingers of the red-eyed tree frog, PAD uses transparent OLED panels to create three types of illumination.


The first two types occur when the PAD light is switched on, during which the bottom of the lamp gives off a rich white light, while the top emits ambient light in a variety of colours.


The initial series of colors, red, yellow and blue, were chosen in honor of the Bauhaus school of design.


The third type of illumination occurs when PAD is switched off, during which ambient light surrounding the lamp will pass through its transparent OLED panels, creating colored shadows similar to the effect of light passing through stained glass.


PAD is the result of a year long collaboration with Novaled AG, a company specializing in OLED technologies and materials, and will be exhibited from April 15th to 20th at the 2012 Frankfurt Light+Building trade show.
