The Akari 45A pendant lamp is one of the Akari Light Sculptures by Isamu Noguchi. The delicate lamp with soft light is made of fine Shoji paper. The name Akari is, fitting to the design, the Japanese expression for brightness and light, which also incorporates airiness.

The Japanese-American artist and creator Isamu Noguchi designed the Akari Light Sculptures from 1951 onwareds, making in total more than 100 handmade Shoji paper models as table lamps, floor lamps or ceiling lamps.

‘The light from an Akari lamp shines like sunlight which is filtered through the Shoji paper. The magic of the paper converts the cold electricity back into the eternal light of the sun. So that the warmth can also continue filling our rooms in the night.’ (Isamu Noguchi)
