Flexible building partitions incorporating transparent OLED have been designed by Gensler’s digital experience team in co-operation with manufacturer Maars Living Walls and LG.
LG Display’s transparent OLED technology has been integrated into a modular partition system, with product design by Gensler’s Digital Experience Design and Product Development practice areas.
Transparent OLED allows content to be integrated into the M923 digital panel system without the visual interruption seen in a traditional display.
The M923 digital product, which consists of interlocking steel profiles and interchangeable snap-in-place panels, can structure interior spaces with short-term and long-term flexibility.
Gensler worked with manufacturers Maars Living Walls and LG to develop the system.
“With the changing landscape of hybrid work technologies, extended reality, the metaverse and experiential platforms in general, there’s a real need for products that can support the dynamic nature of the built environment,” said, Michael Luck Schneider, director of media architecture at Gensler in a video produced to accompany the new development.
He added: “Having digital display technology embedded in your environment enables the end user to rapidly change that environment to meet the needs of those using that space. They can go from making it a place for a hybrid meeting to a place for meditation, relaxation, health and wellness, and to a social event where you support community and culture within your environment.”
