Akari Light Sculpture
Description
Designed in 1954 by Isamu Noguchi, a multidisciplinary artist represented in MoMA’s collection, the Akari Light Sculpture is a luminous icon of mid-century modern lighting. Originally created by Noguchi to help modernize and revive Japan’s paper lantern industry, each design has been handmade for a half century by the original manufacturer in Gifu, Japan. Harmonious blends of Japanese handcraft and modernist form, this Akari Light Sculpture is created from handmade washi paper and bamboo ribbing, supported by a metal frame and tripod base. This model is distinguished by screen printed color that forms a pattern on its washi-paper shade. It measures 17h x 10"diam. and is perfect for a table or large desk. Powered by standard plug-in. 72”-cord kit included. E26 socket that requires an A19 style bulb. (25W recommended. An incandescent LED bulb can also be used). Bulb not included. Easy assembly required.
