Lamp made of shoji paper
The table lamp Akari 24N is one of the Akari Light sculptures by Isamu Noguchi. The round 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. The structure is based on a traditional Japanese tower.
Play with light and shadow
From 1951 the American-Japanese artist and designer Isamu Noguchi designed the Akari Light Sculptures, a total of over 100 models handmade from Shoji paper, as table, floor or ceiling lamps.
"The light of a Akari shines like the light of the sun, filtered through a shoji paper. The magic of the paper transforms the cool electricity back into the eternal light of the sun. So that its warmth can continue to fill our rooms at night." (Isamu Noguchi)
