    OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) lighting has the advantage of being not only environmentally-friendly, but also human-friendly, and therefore has the potential to bring about great innovation to the illumination of spaces in the future. On this occasion, we targeted office space and used our newly developed OLED task lighting to verify its usefulness for the environment and humans. As a result, it became clear that OLED task lighting is effective for establishing a comfortable, low illuminance space where it is possible to achieve both energy efficiency and comfort and that has the potential to bring about positive effects for intelligent productivity. This paper presents this usefulness of OLED task lighting in office space.
