Can a bulb replace a lamp?
 
The world is full of futile products, but OLEDs are the lighting sources of the future.
Instead of designing a new product, a new gadget or furniture object, we wanted to create an object which could replace others. The name BICH, the Korean word for light, was born from this concept: we wanted to design the light.
The world diffusion of lamp holders, screw fitting or bayonet fitting, is very wide and in the last years we have been seen the creation of the first designed energy saving bulbs. It’s another step ahead of minimalist lighting design. Once bulbs were hidden behind a lamp, now they’re beginning to replce them.
We wanted to catch this trend and create a better product, not a simple bulb.
OLED panels are fabulous because they seem magical, they’re impressively thin and their light is wonderful. We looked for a support to make this concept.
The origami art, applied to OLEDs, allows us to create an object where the union between an high technology and a traditional technology, but full of meanings, makes BICH an almost magical object.
We used only 140mm standard OLED panels and we adapted the products to the 2 most used standards, E14 and E27 with 2 different power levels: 2 OLED panels for approximately 400 lumens (E14) and 6 OLED panels for approximately 1200 lumens (E27).
For its nature BICH could be used in all lighting devices: suspended, as table lamp or portable lamp.
The particular shape of BICH , relating to real size, allows a very reduced packaging, very thin and auto-protective for the panels.
Tyvek type 10 allows to have great heat and tear resistance performances, it’s waterproof and easy to clean, but it’s stiff enough to look like paper. Between the two Tyvek layers, heat welded or hand sewn around the panels, it’s placed a copper frame which allow the parts to bend and maintain the position.
In this way it’s possible to orient the light where you want, or to reduce the lighting power simply closing the bright origami. Obviously using hands...

From LEDin Award jury words:
"Easy application, rigor in composition and intuitive to use. We can summarize in this way the characteristics of BICH, unique and fascinating project that applies the art of origami to OLED panels allowing to create an new kind of object, a consistent meeting between innovation and tradition, only achievable with this light source.
The flexible design also offers the possibility to fold the device components to direct the light or reduce its power. The result is a positive interaction among designer, lamp and final user, a new concept of designing light."
