Introduction

Riegens is a major Scandinavian lighting manufacturer, and Riegens Lighting Ltd is its UK-based subsidiary operating in Braintree, Essex. Riegens Lighting Ltd is a specialist, involved in the development and production of standard and custom-made luminaires, with a focus on bespoke, project- specific consumer LED solutions. In recent years, the lighting industry has witnessed new advances in LED- based luminaires, especially from OSRAM, which has introduced a new OLED technology-based product called the Osram Orbeo. Riegens also developed a model of a new lighting concept using the OLED technology with the help of Ogle Models & Prototypes.

Ogle’s Role in Development of New Lighting Concept Model

In 2012, Osram announced the Osram OLED Artist of the Year competition to explore the innovative design paradigm that can be offered by the OLED technology for luminaires. Riegens’s bold and novel concept was one of the short listed top 10 designs from the entries. Vicky Caulfield was one of the designers involved in the competition design. Riegens created a digital 3D design of the innovative luminaire solution and was seeking to make a high-quality working model of the solution for the competition showcase at Lux Live. For that purpose, the company approached Ogle Models & Prototypes (Figure 1).

Vicky mentioned that Ogle was the best option for professionalism and approachability. He also liked that will create and finish all pieces in house without sending them to other locations for assembly or painting. Riegens’s model required a variety of processes to obtain the optimum results in terms of finishing and quality. With a comprehensive range of modeling and prototyping processes in house at the Letchworth facility and highly skilled and experienced people, Ogle is well positioned to meet the requirements. For this model (Figure 2), the final solution required a combination of 3D printing. Ogle used its highly accurate stereolithography in full effect as well as laser cutting and multiple finishes, including painting and polishing.

Conclusion

Vicky expressed his happiness regarding the progression of the project and the final result. The final prototype made was remarkable, met the requirements, and with faultless quality. He is happy to recommend Ogle and the company will be his first option for prototyping in the coming years.
