The National Palace Museum of Korea in Seoul has replaced its lighting system with OLED lighting panels made by LG Display, significantly decreasing the amount of unwanted shadows and glare.

The OLED lighting panels also takes up less space than the previous system - the museum has old-fashioned low ceiling which made it difficult to light properly, and the museum curator explains that the low temperatures of the panels enabled them to place the lighter closer to the exhibited items without loss of damage.

The curator also says that the original lighting system had issues with flickering which was disturbing - "OLED lighting is the most effective option for increasing visitors' field of vision, eliminated flickering and is not harmful to the artifacts on display".
