Floor lamp with paper shade
The Akari BB3-55DD von Vitra is a simple and timeless floor lamp that combines Japanese and Scandinavian influences. The lamp was designed by Isamu Noguchi. It is one of a whole range of lamps that the designer created as early as the middle of the 20. Century. With its minimalist design, the luminaire blends well into modern living spaces and provides a pleasant light.
Made of fine Shoji paper
The lamps of the Akari series of Vitra convince by different forms. They are sometimes simple, sometimes experimental. What they have in common is that they are all made of fine Shoji paper. The white, robust paper mutes the light and spreads it both gently and evenly. Akari is the Japanese word for brightness and light, which also includes lightness.
"The magic of paper transforms the cool electricity back into the eternal light of the sun." Isamu Noguchi
