"Akari 1A Table Lamp"
In 1951, the American-Japanese artist and designer Isamu Noguchi started to design the Akari Light Sculptures, a total of over 100 hand-made Shoji-paper models for table lights, standard lamps or ceiling luminaires. For the name of the lighting series he chose the word "akari", the Japanese term for brightness and light, and also lightness. Collection Vitra Design Museum.
"The light of Akari is like the light of the sun filtered through the paper of shoji. The magic of paper transforms the harshness of electricity back to the light of the sun. So that its warmth may continue into the night to fill our rooms. "(Isamu Noguchi)
