    Each Akari – the Japanese word for “light”- is handcrafted, beginning with the making of washi paper from the inner bark of the mulberry tree. The paper is then glued onto a thin bamboo framework, creating a lighting sculpture, delicate but powerful. The soft and warm glow of light casting through the paper transforms “the harshness of electricity back to the light of our origins – the sun – so that its warmth may continue to fill our rooms at night” as explained by Isamu Noguchi himself. The 1A design is the first ever created by Isamu Noguchi in 1951. Its shape and design give a modern twist to the traditional Japanese lantern that originally inspired Noguchi. Here in colour, it allows you to vary slightly the intensity of light, depending on the lamp’s orientation, whether you choose to place it on a bedside, table or floor.
