"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)
Beginning in 1951, the Japanese-American artist and designer Isamu Noguchi created the Akari Light Sculptures, more than 100 models in total made by hand in Shoji paper, table, floor or ceiling lamps. To designate these lamps, he chose the word "akari", a Japanese expression that means clarity and light and also includes the concept of lightness. Single Vitra edit this collection.
