One of Swedens' largest shopping malls, the Taby Centrum near Stockholm has been recently renovated. Wanting to create an "exceptional oasis of light", they cooperated with OLED lighting maker Blackbody to install a huge centerpiece in its grand entrance and several OLED "trees" in the shopping areas.

The centerpiece is an I.RAIN chandelier (designed by Thierry Gaugain) that is 9 meters high and 9 meters in diameter. It has 1,100 OLED panels, but weighs just 180 Kg. This is one of the world's largest OLED installations, if not the largest one. The chandelier is placed directly above a piano and can be seen from far away - the perfect landmark for the shopping mall.

Blackbody reports that the OLED lamp is attracting shoppers who walk around it and wonder how they work - no other light source apart OLEDs could have achieved the same compactness and efficiency effect.



In addition to the huge OLED chandelier, they installed several illuminated BLOSSOM OLED "trees" (designed by Aldo Cibic). Blackbody says that "Blossom" was created to give to people the sensation of a journey to the land of the rising sun, a celebration of the Japanese holiday of Hanami.

All the OLED panels are made in France by Blackbody. Well done guys!
