This unconventional chandelier, produced in collaboration with Swarovski, is inspired by an earlier design for a table called Capelli produced by Tokujin at the age of 24, which projected images through the use of fibre optics.
The new chandelier, made up of crystals, conjures up ideas of a scene where moving images are projected onto the night sky filled with the sparkling light of countless stars, to present us with the vision of an exciting new future.
Using approximately 20,000 crystals on the tip of about 5,000 optical fibres, each functions as an image terminal.
The chandelier was launched in Milan as part of the Swarovski Crystal Palace collection.
In Tokyo, a similar version was featured as part of Tokujin's solo exhibition, with a 35-boy choir holding small lights to represent the crystals.
