Lighting Fair 2011 is taking place from March 8 to 11, 2011, in Tokyo. Though the main features of the trade show are LED lighting devices, there is an increasing number of companies that exhibit OLED lighting devices.

OLED lighting devices can allegedly realize "surface emission," "transparency," "slim size and light weight" and "flexibility," which cannot be achieved with traditional lighting devices.

The following pictures are OLED lamps showcased at Lighting Fair 2011.
