AKARI 70EN CEILING LAMP

ISAMU NOGUCHI

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.


Graphic and elegant, this delicate light sculpture seems to be floating in the air, wether hanging from your ceiling or from one of our Plok wall lamps. Its shape and design give a modern twist to the traditional Japanese lantern that originally inspired Noguchi.
