Akari Light Sculpture Model 3A
Description
This iconic Akari Paper Lantern Light Sculpture blends traditional Japanese handicraft with modernist style. Handmade of washi paper and bamboo ribbing that is supported by a metal frame and a tripod base, the Akari Paper Lantern Light Sculpture lends personality to any room, whether it serves as office lighting or as a table lamp in your home. Light Sculptures from the Akari "light" series have been represented in the Museum's design collection since the 1950s. A multifaceted artist and designer, Isamu Noguchi was first inspired to create his Akari Light Sculpture series after a trip to Gifu, Japan, during which he noticed lanterns illuminating night fishing along the Nagara River. MoMA has a long and storied history with Japan, featuring over 1,000 works in the collection by Japanese artists and designers including objects, tea-related items, textiles, furniture design, films, painting, and sculpture. This genuine Akari Light Sculpture features a stamped symbol and the designer's signature. Requires one 40-watt bulb (not included). Simple assembly required.
