Description

This lamp is an icon of the Akari collection.


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.


A harmonious blend of Japanese handcraft and modernist form, this unique series combine a stand made of a bamboo pole and a black cast iron base, with a shade made from handmade washi paper and bamboo ribbing.


Due to its fragility, this product can not be sold online, please contact us for more information.
