Sōl Organic LED Chandelier Receives Platinum ADEX Award for Design Excellence

Aug 26, 2011 It has been recently announced that WAC Lighting has received a Platinum ADEX Award for Design Excellence for Sōl™, its Organic LED Chandelier. Sōl™ has also received a Special Citation for the best use of OLED, and a Silver Product Innovation Award in the category of decorative pendants, from Architectural SSL Magazine. 
 
"Once again, we are delighted that Sōl has been recognized for its design excellence and innovation," explained WAC Lighting President Shelley Wald. "Sōl's remarkably thin Organic LED panels have captured tremendous attention from the industry. This luminaire certainly represents the future of lighting possibilities." 
Sōl™ is an upscale decorative chandelier utilizing Organic LED panels, the world's most revolutionary nanotechnology light source available today. Sōl™ is inherently sustainable, designed around energy efficient and environmentally friendly technology and individually crafted in WAC Lighting's clean manufacturing campus featuring zero landfill status and inhouse UL Labs. 
 
Soft light from the OLED panels is incorporated into the design and requires no additional control from lenses or reflectors that traditionally results in a 10% to 40% loss in efficiency. The panels achieve energy efficiency without the use of heavy metals or other rare-earth materials commonly used in other energy-efficient sources. OLEDs are made of layers of carbon-based materials that self-illuminate in various colors when energized, without having an impact on the environment. 
Sōl™ was inspired by the Sun and ancient tribal designs, which celebrate this natural source of energy for the earth’s carbon-based life forms. For eons, the Sun has symbolized hope, vitality, eternal energy, renewal, and light.  
 
Sōl™ features adjustable light distribution for ambient mood lighting, free of undesirable shadowing or glare. The circular satellite OLED panels rotate up for indirect lighting, or tilt down to comfortably illuminate the surface below, or faces around a table. The central downlight also provides supplemental lighting on a tabletop. 
Intrinsically thin (2.1 millimeters), each of Sōl's seven Organic LED panels distributes warm white light with solid color rendering (CRI 80) and a warm color temperature (3900K). The OLED panels are fully dimmable and deliver a uniform area of glare-free light.  
 
The Sōl™ chandelier is crafted of aluminum and finished in black nickel. It is 18.5 inches in diameter and 2.2 inches tall. The overall height of the chandelier, with a supporting metal rod, ranges from 12.25 to 40 inches tall.
