Akari Light Sculpture Model XP1
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 XP1 model is a 15 x 6.75 x 6.75" tabletop lantern that balances rectilinear geometry and organic warmth. Harmonious blends of Japanese handcraft and modernist form, each Akari Light Sculpture 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
