Earlier this year during Milano Salone 2011 Torafu Architects created an installation on behalf of Kaneka to illuminate the attractiveness of their next-generation organic LED lighting.

Hundreds of light-emitting diodes hung from the ceiling in arc shapes as they portrayed  one of Japan’s most favorite spring pastimes, yozakura, or cherry blossom viewing at night. It’s a perfect combination of something new and something old.
