At ICFF 2010 in New York, we met London-based designer Tomomi Sayuda, who was exhibiting Oshibe, an interactive lighting sculpture that plays ambient sounds.
Description from Tomomi Sayuda:
Oshibe means stamen in Japanese which is where my inspiration came from. But Oshibe is also inspired by other optimistic elements of life: eggs, plants, light and the moon. This is a playful interactive lighting sculpture. When you put eggs on stamens, Oshibe plays tender ambient sounds and lights up. Each stamen plays a different sound. The sounds change according to the number and position of the eggs.
You can watch a short YouTube video of Oshibe – here.
