Description

The table lamp Akari 50EN is one of the Akari light sculptures from Isamu Noguchi. The filigree lamp with the round design produces a soft light that permates through a screen of fine Shoji paper. The name Akari is, fitting to its design, the Japanese expression for brightness and light, which also includes airiness.

From 1951 the Japanese artist and designer Isamu Noguchi designed the Akari light sculptures, more than 100 handmade shoji paper models at a total, as table, stand or ceiling lamps.

“The light from an Akari lamp is like sunlight that is filtered through the shoji paper. The magic of the paper converts the cold electricity back to eternal sunlight. For the warmth also persists through the night filling our rooms” (Isamu Noguchi)
