LG Chem and LG Electronics will be jointly holding an OLED Lighting design competition in
 
collaboration with designboom, a leading digital architecture and design magazine.  LG Chem is
 
one of the leaders in the OLED lighting industry and is the only company to announce plans to
 
build a production size fab – 5th Gen. This year LG Chem plans to add three standard size panels
 
and one special size panel to its product roadmap (see Figure 2).  LG Chem has been actively
 
promoting its OLED lighting products and the company regularly exhibits through various road
 
shows and international exhibitions.  LG Chem and LG Electronics are reaching out to the
 
designers in order to promote and create OLED lighting panel designs that can enable OLED
 
lighting panel users to experience the most natural and sensible lighting for their daily lives.
