Blackbody announced a new OLED 'sculpture' -the Samothrace. Blackbody says that this is more than just a lamp - it's a "modern figurehead" - a silver plated monolith that has an OLED lighting-device on top. It has a 154cm2 OLED surface in total and the whole thing is battery operated. Blackbody says that the batteries last for 8 hours (and charge within an hour and a half). Apparently it is available in 'limited edition' - but we do not know the price.

The Samothrace (which was designed by Bertrand Médas from ID’S) will be presented at the "Maison & Objet 2011 salon NOW!" - starting tomorrow - in Paris.
