The soft light shining through Japanese paper blends into both Japanese and Western spaces. This series features 3 or 4 thin iron wire legs, designed to make the whole as light as possible. All AKARI are carefully produced one by one by skilled craftsmen. "N" attached to 1N is an acronym for New and is attached to a relatively new design model. The slightly broken silhouette gives a more sculpted look.
1N is the most popular model among the table lamps, and Genichiro Inokuma, a painter who was also a good friend of Isamu Noguchi, also used it with his favorite miscellaneous goods at his 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. 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.
