Interactive sculpture by Tomomi Sayuda

Oshibe, which in Japanese means stamen, is also the creation of Japanese designer Tomomi Sayuda. Basically, the interesting thing about this piece is that it operation on the principle of synaesthesia. The sculpture attemps to mesmerize you on multiple levels by exciting your senses. It’s not such a revolutionary piece, but still it’s very interesting.

Oshibe is an interactive lighting sculpture that also plays ambient sounds. As the designer declares, this project was inspired by eggs, plants, light and the moon. It’s an odd combination when you think about it but if it works for her who are we to judge. As you can see the sculpture features multiple stamens and eggs. When you put eggs on stamens something unexpected happens: Oshibe plays tender ambient sounds and it also lights up. Each stamen plays a different sound. So the stamens are like a quire as the sounds change according to the number and positions of the eggs.

It’s a very interesting piece that would look good in a modern home as a decorative and maybe also as a lamp. Since the sounds it plays are so tender, Oshibe could be a very efficient relaxation device. Whenever you feel stressed or tired, just find a comfortable position and take Oshibe with you. You’re going to feel much better. You should try it.
