AKARI L7

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. Hanging from the ceiling, this AKARI embodies « lightness » in all senses of the word, floating in the air and softly brightening your interior. Its sharp design gives a modern twist to the traditional Japanese lantern that originally inspired Noguchi.

This ceiling lamp is sold without an electrical wiring kit.
