Lightly Technologies

Lightly Technologies, a revolutionary Dublin based lighting start-up, was founded back in January 2016 as a reaction to the unfulfilled promise of OLED lighting technology. Lightly is re-defining the concept of ultra-thin, surface light sources and truly enabling a new generation of lighting system design and application.

OLED – Inadequate in Research and Manufacture

OLED pioneered the concept of ultra-thin, surface light sources and the new generation of lighting design that it enabled. However, after almost a decade of R&D into the most technically advanced light source ever conceived, OLED lighting was all but abandoned due to the manufacturing difficulty, and the inadequate performance in light output, efficacy and lifetime when compared to LED.

Founder and mechanical engineer Matt Hanbury personally worked on both OLED lighting and LCD smartphone displays engineering. His realization was that a paradigm shift was needed within the lighting industry, the desire was for an ultra-thin surface light source, not for a light source using OLED technology.

The Power of LED with the Appearance of OLED

By combining his deep knowledge of these two sectors he developed Hikari SQ, Lightly Technologies flagship product: an ultra-thin light source with the appearance and design benefits of OLED lighting, but the superior performance and manufacturing of LED technology.

The fixures are available in different Color Temperatures (2,700K / 3,000K and 4,000K) and operate with a broad range of standard available drivers.

Lightly Technologies and Luximprint

Engineering and design of novel lighting systems is changing. The ultra-flat yet powerful Hikari SQ light sources greatly combine with, for example, Luximprint textured surfaces and Optographix.
