Japanese Table Lamp

In 1951, American/Japanese artist and designer Isamu Noguchi started to design the Akari Light Sculptures, a total of more than 100 hand-made Shoji-paper models of table lights, standard lamps or ceiling lamps emerged. He chose the word "akari" as name for this lamps collection, the Japanese denomination for brightness and light, and also weightlessness. Collection Vitra Design Museum.

"The light of Akari is like the light of the sun filtered through the paper of shoji. The harshness of electricity is thus transformed through the magic of paper back to the light of our origin - the sun - so that its warmth may continue to fill our rooms at night." (Isamu Noguchi)

Classics from Vitra

5 of 5 stars 2019-08-15, , Vitra - Akari Table Lamp, 1AD

Automatically translated from German

I have considered for a long time whether I absolutely need this lamp and have finally given it to myself for my birthday. The quality is really convincing and even if the price is a bit heavy it is worth its money. I look forward to it every day now.

Great workmanship

The lamp is very high-quality processed, the paper shade has a beautiful structure, the light is pleasantly warm. Only the construction of the lamp is a bit difficult, this could be solved a bit easier. Nevertheless - especially from an aesthetic point of view - absolutely recommendable!

A true joy

I have had this lamp on my shelf for years now and am very satisfied. The workmanship is impeccable and the light is comfortably adjustable by means of Philipps Hue lamp. It is desirable that the lamp would be dimmable at the price from the manufacturer.

Japan flair in the bedroom

5 of 5 stars 2019-05-13, , Vitra - Akari Table Lamp, 1A

At the beginning I was rather skeptical about this lamp because you get very little lamp for a lot of money. In fact, the lamp also comes in a very flat package with a simple lamp socket. You have to assemble everything yourself. Caution is advised here: The paper screen is more filigree than that of the IKEA competitors. However, the lamp then emits a nice diffuse and warm light. All in all I am very satisfied!

The Akari table lamp 1A is so beautiful and fits so well into my interior that I couldn't decide where to place it at first; it looks stunning in every place. Now it stands on my teakwood chest of drawers from the 60s and is the unrestricted eye-catcher in the room. I can absolutely deny that this lamp is reminiscent of an Ikea model. The Akari lamp radiates the careful handmade and the noble material simply. She seems noble and reserved, seems to float. Nevertheless, she immediately attracts attention in every room as she is very pleasant. Too bad I haven't bought them before.


Comment by the Connox Team:
Liebe Frau. E., schön, dass Ihnen die Leuchte so zusagt! Wir, das Connox Team, freuen uns jedes Mal über solch ausführliche und positive Bewertungen. Der "Ikea-Vergleich" kommt besonders bei Artikeln von Vitra oder Artek recht häufig vor, aber auch wir sind von der Qualität der Originale absolut überzeugt! Man sieht den Unterschied zwischen Designklassiker und Ikea sofort und im Grunde ist es ein Kompliment des schwedischen Möbelhauses ikonische Designs wie die der Akari Leuchte nachahmen zu wollen. Wir wünschen Ihnen viel Freude mit ihrem neuen Klassiker! Beste Grüße, Ihr Connox-Team

We ordered this table lamp for our living room and are very satisfied with it. Very good workmanship and a beautiful light. For gibt´s 5 stars. The small "-" point is the relatively high price.
