Akari Light Sculpture Model 55A
Description

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 55A model is a 20h x 22"diam. spherical pendant perfect for suspending over a dining or kitchen table. Harmonious blends of Japanese handcraft and modernist form, the Akari Light Sculpture Model 55A is created from handmade washi paper and bamboo ribbing, supported by a metal frame.
