Ikea Bends Over for Flexible LED Lighting

Light emitting diodes, better known as LEDs, run cool and use very little electricity. That’s a cost benefit that furniture giant Ikea simply can’t pass up.

What Is Light Made Of?

The company is partnering with Scottish company Design LED Products to incorporate thin, flexible LED tiles on to a range of household products from furniture to bulbless lamps or for television backlighting.

“This technology opens up fantastic possibilities for innovative designs using energy efficient LEDs,” says managing director of IKEA GreenTech Christian Ehrenborg in a press release. “The partnership is a clear strategic fit for IKEA and our goal to make living sustainably affordable and attractive for millions of people.”
