Product Description

Vitra Akari Pendant/Ceiling Lamps Series

In 1951, 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. The Japanese word "akari" means brightness and light, but also lightness. Vitra Design Museum Collection. "The light of Akari is like the light of the sun filtered through the paper of shoji. The harshness of electricity is thus transformed through the agic of paper back to the light of our origin – the sun. So that its warmth may continue to fill our rooms at night". (Isamu Noguchi)- Lampshade: shoji paper, partly painted.

This listing is for the Vitra Akari ceiling/pendant lamp collection - also available are Akari table lamps (which can be found here) and Akari floor lights (which can be found here).
