Round Akari pendant luminaire

The Akari A pendant lamp is one of the Akari light sculptures by Isamu Noguchi. The filigree lamp with the soft light is made of fine Shoji paper. The name Akari is, matching the design, the Japanese expression for brightness and light, which also includes lightness.

From 1951, the American-Japanese artist and designer Isamu Noguchi designed the Akari Light Sculptures, a total of over 100 hand-made models from Shoji paper, as table, floor or ceiling lamps.

"The light of an Akari shines like the light of the sun that is filtered through a Shoji paper. The magic of paper transforms the cool electricity back into the eternal light of the sun. So that their warmth can continue to fill our rooms at night." (Isamu Noguchi)
