The Akari Light Sculptures by Isamu Noguchi are a series of luminaires handcrafted from traditional washi paper by Japanese artisans.
The Akari Light Sculptures are marked with a stylised sun-and-moon logo, resembling the corresponding Japanese characters. This symbol guarantees the authenticity of each product.
In 1951, Isamu Noguchi began to design the Akari Light Sculptures, works characterised by weightless luminosity. He chose the name ‘akari’ for these objects, a word that means ‘light’ in Japanese, connoting both illumination and physical lightness. During a journey to Japan, Noguchi visited Gifu, a town known for manufacturing paper parasols and lanterns. While there, he sketched his first two Akari Light Sculptures, and over the following years, he created a total of more than 100 models, consisting of table, floor and ceiling lamps ranging in size from 24 to 290 cm.
