    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.


    1A is the very first Akari designed by Noguchi in 1951. This coloured version allows you to play with the intensity of light depending on the way you place it.


    Electric set included.
