ZOLED is an OLED lamp made from polycarbonate, plastic sheet and a 3D printed PLA part. The panel is fixed to the sheet by means of adhesive and machine screws. The polycarbonate is 60 percent light-diffusive so it has a really pleasing glow. 
The product goal was to design a lamp that was compact, accents the OLED's flat nature,                      and has modern appeal.
This project was sponsored by OLED Works in Rochester, NY. My studio class worked with an electrical engineer from the company. He supplied the OLED panels and taught us how to wire them                      as well as the precautions.
Lastly, this project was a small assembly run where six lamps were produced and sold.

Experimenting with materials. Styrene, acrylic, and polycarbonate were all possibilities but I chose to go with a polycarbonate because of its structural integrity and light diffusive property.
