AKARI UF3XN

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. Its shape and design give a modern twist to the traditional Japanese lantern that originally inspired Noguchi. Whether you choose to place it on a bedside, a table or on the floor, it will light up the room in a poetic manner.
