In 2008, Mike Casper, Dr. Tony Nichol, and Shawn Pucylowski came together in Chicago to form FLEx Lighting. Initially they focused on combining xenon light bulbs, fiber optics and plastic film into a thin light source. Over time this turned into a much more compact system of LEDs and optical film.
Soon enough, they would create the FLEx front light panel: a breakthrough light transmission system that could revolutionize the display industry.
In early 2021, FLEx became Azumo: a combination of azure, a cloudless sky which is our greatest source of natural light and the primary illumination source for reﬂective displays & lumo, a nod to “lumens” for light.
Today, Azumo is delivering on the promise of LCD 2.0 to make displays efficient, effective, and safe for all.
