    Description

    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 second series of AKARI designs created by Isamu Noguchi differs from the other AKARI, both in structure and design: on a tripod, two thick bamboo rings hold the washi paper on top and bottom of the lampshade, for a more traditional look.
