Corning’s Fibrance Technology Glows Bright with Japanese Rock Stars
An event in Tokyo was aglow recently thanks in part to Corning’s Fibrance® Light-Diffusing Fiber.
More than 1,200 people gathered at a special cultural event hosted by the popular Japanese rock-electronic band, Sakanaction. In addition to live music, the gathering showcased culture, technology, and art exhibits, including an installation with Fibrance technology.
Sakanaction has several hit singles on the Japanese music charts, and the group’s lead singer, Ichiro Yamaguchi, came up with the idea to host this collaborative event. Yamaguchi outreached to a variety of artists and designers to transform part of the event space into an art gallery to highlight culture and technology.
A lighting designer working on the event found Fibrance Light-Diffusing Fiber on Corning’s website and contacted the Japanese Fibrance technology team.
