This floorlight installation is inspired by the fields of rice that shimmer in gold and sway in the wind at the end of summer. Equipped with motion sensors and solenoids, the heads of rice will begin to sway and illuminate with LED lights when approached by visitors. As people move away, the light and swaying motion gently quiet down. This artwork received the inaugural Lexus Design Award and has been displayed at invitational exhibitions in cities around the world including Milan, New York, Paris, Dubai, London, and Frankfurt, but this marks its premiere to the Japanese public.



TANGENT was founded in London in 2015 by Hideki Yoshimoto. While providing various designs to European and international luxury brands, it is also enthusiastic about producing artwork. In recent years, it has been focusing on research and development in the area where technology and culture intersect. In 2021 TANGENT JAPAN was newly founded to expand the range of activities in Japan.
