Product description

"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, the American-Japanese artist and designer Isamu Noguchi created the Akari Light Sculptures, more than 100 models in total made by hand in Shoij paper, table lamps, stand or ceiling. To designate these lamps, he chose the word "akari", a Japanese expression that means clarity and light and that also includes the concept of lightness.
Only Vitra offers the Akari Light Sculptures.
