Working exclusively in white “because it is the colour that most beautifully projects lights and shadows”, Japanese designer Chihiro Tanaka launched his eponymous lighting brand in 2005 and has since produced a range of ethereal lamps based on that most quintessentially Japanese flower, the cherry blossom. With delicate handmade petals overlapping each other to create a soft, almost mystical light, Tanaka’s Sakulights (about £435 from Studio Noi) have a delicate beauty, their pale charm reminiscent of blossom in the moonlight.
