The project “WEAVING THE LIGHT” with Panasonic is shown at Tokyo Midtown (Roppongi, Tokyo ) from November 1 to 5, 2017! Please come by and check the installation.

“WEAVING THE LIGHT” Light and space brought to life by future life sources. The next generation light device, laser, is highly directional and very efficient even at high intensity. Taking advantage of these features and by weaving fiber like gossamer threads, the collaboration has created lighting that brings new value to spaces.

[fluid] by Nao Tamura
There is a moment when the sun hits the surface of the lagoon,the lens of water creates beautiful sparks of light.[fluid] captures that spark of ephemeral beauty and turns it into a source of light. It creates a fluid ripple of light just like when a droplet hits the surface of still water.
