Cooper-Hewitt: Cherry Blossom by Antenna

Event Date: 
Tuesday, April 6, 2010

Industrial designers Masamichi Udagawa and Sigi Moeslinger are partners in the firm Antenna. Udagawa and Moeslinger create functional products for complex systems.

For the 2003 Triennial (Inside Design Now), Antenna created a shower of cherry blossoms. Petals float and cluster in relation to the number of visitors traversing the Museum's grand staircase, creating a satisfying symmetry between the electrodes that trigger the blossoms and the nerve endings they touch in us.
