Akari Light Sculptures

Designed By

Isamu Noguchi, a Japanese American landscape architect and artist, designed the Akari Light Sculptures in 1954. Noguchi merged traditional Japanese materials with modern designs to create lantern-like pieces. Each lamp is made with handmade washi paper and bamboo ribbing to emit a warm glow of light. The lamps are designed to be flat packed and easily transportable.
