Description 

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)
