A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to observe an amazing plant: its flowers bloomed only at night. I never found out what they are called. The wonderful thing is that the flowers bloom at once in just a few minutes strictly at a certain hour. It happens really very quickly, before our eyes.
I think the designers from the Japanese company Nendo were inspired by something similar when they came up with the hanabi lamp in 2006.
This dim-looking pendant lamp is interesting in that, under the influence of the heat of the light bulb, its petals open, and then, when the light is turned off, they close again.
Hanabi means "fireworks" in Japanese. This word consists of the hieroglyphs "fire" and "flowers" - two phenomena that are similar in their fleetingness, transience. Therefore, the appearance of the lamp reminds of the edge of beauty and fleetingness.
Such a "fiery flower" is capable of enlivening a room very much. Of course, it is clear that this is just an electric lamp, but nevertheless it blooms from the heat, which means that you can imagine that it is alive.
