INAHO is interior lighting inspired by golden ears of rice swaying in the wind. Light is cast in dots, reminiscent of paddy rice, through perforated tubes. Human-detection sensors, embedded in the base of the installation, cause the stems to sway as a person passes by.

INAHO is the Grand Prix winner of Lexus Design Award 2013.
