Vitra Akari UF3-Q lamp by Isamu Noguchi

Vitra Akari UF3-Q lamp by Isamu Noguchi


Inspired by a trip to a small Japanese village, where the American-Japanese artist and designer Isamu Noguchi had observed fishing men with lanterns in paper and bamboo. Noguchi created his characteristically and ambient paper lamps, which are all handmade and still produced on the same factory in Japan. The Akari Light Sculptures - akari meaning light in Japanese – are a harmonious blend of Japanese handcraft and modernist form. Every Akari lamp are still being manufactured by hand in the family driven Ozeki factory.
