Paper snowflake-like elements make up this beautiful minimalist Christmas tree

An elegant festive decoration by the design studio Nendo was displayed in a shopping center in Tokyo.

The delicate elegance of the Christmas tree by Japanese design studio Nendo is made up of metal panels painted bright gold. On display in a shopping center in downtown Tokyo, the decoration looks as if it has been cut from paper, but the 7.5-meter-high creation is made of metal panels bolted together to form a pyramid. Behind them are 416 compact fans that move the panels up, down and across at a pre-programmed rate, so that the Christmas tree is constantly changing, undulating and evoking the shimmering surface of snow. Above the “tree”, the panels, which are hung one by one and are also placed in several other locations throughout the shopping center, move like shimmering beams of light.
