Master Cinematographer Takao Inoue, designed these beautiful lights as part of a small exhibition on display at Milano Salone earlier this year. The lights are made from real dandelions that have been suspended inside an acrylic block with a miniature OLED light embedded within the stem. The flowering plant, in its yellow blossoms that signify the arrival of spring, and its fluffy seed heads that represent natural beauty and transience, are adored across the country by adults and children alike. The TAMPOPO OLED (tampopo is Japanese for dandelion) is now available through Somewhere Tokyo. You can read more on Spoon & Tamago and catch a brief interview with the designer on Lost at E Minor.
