We also sell replacement shades for damage or stains. 1AB is a standard classic model, and the acronym "A" is used. It is a type of 1A abstract pattern that has been produced since the 1950s. In Japan at that time, white lanterns had a strong image as a funeral.
Since it was not accepted, the type with an abstract pattern was designed. It seems that white modern lighting fixtures became popular overseas soon. Even now, it seems that overseas people tend to prefer plain simple items. Black is a color reprinted to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Isamu Noguchi's birth. The 1AB is a model used by Isamu Noguchi as a bedside lamp in his New York home.
By using it in a Western-style room as well as a Japanese-style room, a modern impression is further accentuated. Also, it matches the interior of the Nordic system. There are areas with many patterns and areas with few patterns, and you can adjust the brightness by changing the direction. Born from the encounter between Isamu Noguchi and Gifu Lantern."AKARI", a light sculpture consisting of Japanese paper and bamboo. The lighting sculpture named "AKARI" was created in 1952 from the encounter between Isamu Noguchi and Gifu lanterns, a traditional Gifu prefecture industry. The nature of Japanese paper that softly diffuses light and the rough and irregular stretching of bamboo skeleton, which is a framework, leaves the shrinkage and wrinkles of Washi paper as it is, not only as a fixture for lighting, but as a sculpture of light. The production attitude that sticks to the nature of the material is what is seen in traditional Japanese crafts, and the lightness and fragility of "AKARI" is also based on the aesthetic sense of ancient Japan. This work by Isamu Noguchi was immediately noticed around the world for beautifully recreating the beautiful crafts unique to Japan to the present age. Widely used in homes and offices.
