Designed by Isamu Noguchi, a multidisciplinary artist represented in MoMA’s collection, Akari Light Sculptures are luminous icons of midcentury modern lighting. Originally created by Noguchi to help modernize and revive Japan’s paper lantern industry, they’ve been handmade for a half century by the original manufacturer in Gifu, Japan. The 1P model is an 18.5h x 8”diam. tent-like form on a tripod base, perfect for a table or large desk. Harmonious blends of Japanese handcraft and modernist form, the Akari Light Sculpture Model 1P is created from handmade washi paper and bamboo ribbing, supported by a metal frame. 72”-cord kit included. E26 socket that requires an A19 style bulb.
