Description

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)

great lamp

4 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Vitra - Akari 45A pendant lamp

Automatically translated from German

the lamp is great like I said! The workmanship of the lampshade is beautiful, the light is also great, of course no comparison to the cheap pendant. However, the socket and the cable is really "cheap" and Vitra and the lampshade are not worthy.

The lamp itself (Akari paper and Bamboos) is very well handmade in Japan, but the power cord from Vitra is not of high quality. Actually shade!

Automatically translated from German

For a long time I considered whether I should indulge with you lamp, since the price for a paper lamp seemed to me nevertheless very high! Now I enjoy every day the beautiful sight and the great light it gives off. No comparison to other paper lamps that can be seen everywhere. One point deduction for the cable. For the price I would have expected something more valuable.

Automatically translated from German

The lampshade is very well finished, even during the day, when the light is off, it enhances the room through its appearance. The included textile cable is, like the canopy (made of metal) and the lamp socket, black, and makes a high-quality impression.

very pleasant light

5 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Vitra - Akari 45A pendant lamp
1 of 1 customers have found this review helpful.

Automatically translated from German

this high-quality paper lamp was easy to install, looks great and produces a pleasant, dimmed light. I would particularly like to emphasize the clearly visible quality difference to other, cheaper paper lamps in the trade. The bulb change, however, is a bit cumbersome.
