Via Core77: IKEA has just made an investment in a UK-based venture start-up called DesignLED Products that is developing another flexible LED panel.

DesignLED is encapsulating LEDs directly into a flexible light-guide, with etched diffusion optics on the surface of the film.  Interesting, as this should allow them to create directional distribution of light, instead of simply lambertian distribution, if so desired.  

DesignLED has launched a couple basic products based on this technology, including under-cabinet and signage back lighting.
