OLED Tampopo: Beautiful Dandelions Lights by Takao Inoue

Designed by Takao Inoue and called OLED Tampopo, these beautiful lights are made from real dandelions that have been suspended inside an acrylic block with a miniature OLED light embedded within the stem. It is an art piece more than a light. When asked the inspiration of creating the lamp, Inoue says “Fragility is expressed by an illuminated wavering TAMPOPO. It reminds us of our old memories of picking up dandelion’s puff. The mysterious light gives us a moment to release ourselves”. We have no idea about how the power for the lights comes from and how did managed to avoid air bubbles while embedding dandelions into the blocks.
