Akari Light Sculptures, 9A

Isamu Noguchi, 1951

In 1951 the Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi began to design the Akari Light Sculptures, a group of works handcrafted out of washi paper that eventually comprised over 100 luminaires – table, floor and ceiling lamps. He chose the name 'akari' for these objects, a word that means 'light' in Japanese, connoting both illumination and physical lightness.
Now the inspiring Akari Light Sculptures collection is being expanded with three new models, offering even more choice for furnishings in a wide variety of styles.

Material: Washi Paper, metal base, sometimes bamboo frame
