Hikari SQ: The Ultra-Thin, Powerful and Smooth LED Light Source
Inspired by advanced smartphone display technology and a determination to deliver a commercially viable and functional ultra-thin lighting product, Hikari SQ was invented back in 2016 by Lightly Technologies as a reaction to the unfulfilled promise of OLED lighting technology. As it perfectly aligns with some recent Luximprint developments, most notably Luximprint Optographix solutions, we gladly provide a brief introduction of this interesting concept.
Possibilities of Ultra-Flat Lighting Design
Hikari SQ is an ultra-thin light source with the performance, manufacturing and commercial advantages of LED. Hikari SQ delivers maximum creative freedom for a new generation of decorative and architectural lighting designs.
Here’s a brief introduction movie explaining the concept:
LED vs OLED
Basically, Lightly Technologies was founded as a reaction to the unfulfilled promise of OLED lighting technology. 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.
Hikari SQ – Lightly Technologies Flagship Product
A paradigm shift is needed within the lighting industry, the desire for an ultra-thin surface light source is there. However, OLED technology is far from preferred due to the aforementioned reasons.[caption id="attachment_4110" align="alignnone" width="1024"] Hikari SQ is an ultra-flat, yet powerful and smooth lighting solution that seamlessly integrates with interior surfaces and finishes.

The perfect answer – Hikari SQ – includes an ultra-thin light source with the appearance and design benefits of OLED lighting, but the superior performance and manufacturing of LED technology. Hikari SQ revives that promise of ultra-thin, surface lighting and truly enables a new generation of lighting design.
