"Akari's light is like sunlight filtered through shoji paper. Thus, the hardness of electricity is transformed again into the light of our origin - the sun - thanks to the magic of paper, so that its warmth continues to fill our rooms at night. "(Isamu Noguchi)
From the year 1951, Isamu Noguchi created the Akari Light Sculptures, table lamps, stand or ceiling in more than 100 models made by hand in Shoij paper. "Akari", the term used to designate the collection, is a Japanese expression that means clarity, light and lightness.
The Akari Light Sculptures are exclusive to Vitra and are in the Vitra Design Museum.
