She associated user interaction with nano-technology

OLED technology–organic light-emitting diodes–have allowed illumination design to reach unprecedented levels.

By associating user interaction with the nano-technology, bina baitel studio created ‘Recto Verso’.

Recto-Verso is a reversible lamp that uses OLED technology, organic light-emitting diodes made of carbon and hydrogen-base materials in the form of extremely fine light-weight plaques.

OLED is an organic light-emitting diode in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compound which emits light in response to an electric current.




It is designed as a free-standing structure and has a leather pull-over sheath like the pouch of touch pad.




The luminescent plaques are integrated to the reverse side and with a touch of the hand can be activated to create varied atmospheres: direct light when the emitter side is face-up, indirect mood-lighting in reversed mode.


By associating an intuitive gesture with component that uses advanced nano-technology, the Recto-Verso lamp offers new interaction with light.
