Description

Table lamp made of bamboo and washi paper

The Akari YA2 table lamp by Isamu Noguchi for Vitra is a timeless lamp in Far Eastern style. Isamu Noguchi has designed more than 100 Akari lamps since 1951. The impetus for the design luminaires came from a visit to Japan. The lamp is made of bamboo and washi paper. The white, robust paper softens the light and spreads it gently and evenly.

Akari Light Sculptures Series

The Akari Light Sculpture series consists of pendant luminaires and other table, floor and ceiling luminaires. The lamps have different shapes, are sometimes simple, sometimes experimental.

"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
