OLED installation inspired by Japanese tradition of cherry blossoms in spring
The traditional Japanese custom of Yozakura has now been given a touch of technology. The tradition of enjoying flowering cherry blossoms in the dark hours inspired design house Torafu Architects to create this masterpiece, commissioned by Kaneka for a Milano Saloni edition from last year. Using OLED display panels to create a beautiful twinkling installation that’s bound to leave observers awestruck, this one uses thousands of LEDs that subtly remind visitors of cherry blossom petals that seem to glimmer at night in spring and is the perfect blend of technology, art and tradition.
