Designed by world-renowned lighting designer Mikiko Ishii with the collaboration of CORSAIR and Tokyo Tower in mind, the official CORSAIR logo will be projected on the south face of the Tokyo Tower's main deck and will shine with an original diamond veil.
The lighting will not be announced until the day the tower is actually lit up, so be sure to check out the special lighting with your own eyes!
There are also plans in the works for CORSAIR products to be sold worldwide after 2022, using the Tokyo Tower and the Tokyo Tower's illuminated design.
