Lightly Technologies has developed a patent-pending, ultra-thin LED light bulb, enabling a new generation of lighting fixture design and lighting in architecture. With a growing customer base across Europe, our technology is used to create exceptional experiences with light.
Lightly Technologies has developed an ultra-thin LED light bulb, enabling a new generation of lighting fixture design and lighting in architecture. The light bulb, Hikari SQ, is essentially a light-emitting tile, only 3mm thick that produces a surface of quality light for functional and decorative designs. Using LED technology, Hikari SQ creates a beam of bright but low glare light, and is designed to be highly energy efficient with a lifetime of over 20 years.
Since 2012, the global lighting industry has invested almost $500m into R&D for OLED lighting, the first ultra-thin, surface light source. Despite this investment and widespread interest from the market, OLED lighting never became commercially viable due to high manufacturing costs and poor performance.
By fundamentally rethinking the approach to engineering this form of light source, Lightly Technologies have solved the issues associated with OLED lighting. Lightly will capitalise on the existing market interest for ultra-thin light sources and enable value creation for B2B customers, through the design of unique, modern lighting fixtures.
Having finalised the engineering design and now preparing for mass production, Lightly Technologies have started shipping paid developer kits to B2B customers across Europe who are starting to develop products using Hikari SQ.
The company has directors loans of €6k.
