AKARI PL2 SQUARE LIGHT PANEL

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.


Akari PL2 is a modular light panel system made of 2x2 two-feet squares assembled in one piece. Graphic and elegant, this delicate light sculpture can be backlit and installed on a wall or a ceiling.


Its shape and design give a modern twist to the traditional Japanese lantern that originally inspired Noguchi.


PL2 is sold without electrical wiring kit.
