The table lamp Akari 3X is one of the Akari light sculptures by Isamu Noguchi. The filigree lamp with the distinctive loaf pan shape produces a soft light that comes through a lampshade of fine shoji paper. The name Akari is, fitting to the table lamp design, the Japanese expression for brightness and light, which also includes airiness.

The Japanese-American artist and creator Isamu Noguchi designed the Akari light sculptures from 1951, in total more than 100 handmade shoji paper models as table lamps, standard 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 from the sun. So that the warmth can also continue filling our rooms in the night” (Isamu Noguchi)
