Akari 1AY Table Lamp
Designed by Isamu Noguchi.
In 1951 Isamu Noguchi began to design the Akari Light Sculptures.
He chose the name 'akari' for these objects, a word that means 'light' in Japanese, connoting both illumination and physical lightness.
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.
'The harshness of electricity is thus transformed through the magic of paper back to the light of our origin – the sun – so that its warmth may continue to fill our rooms at night.'
