Design Within Reach Home Lighting
In Japanese, the word for light also implies weightlessness. Isamu Noguchi marries these two qualities in his magical Akari Lamps, expressing spirit and substance in light and form. Inferior copies are widely available, but these genuine models, imprinted with the Noguchi signature and logo, are incomparable. Delicate yet strong, the lamps are handcrafted using washi paper made from the bark of the mulberry tree and shaped on a frame of higo bamboo ribbing. These pieces lend any space the sense of serenity and "imperfect" beauty that Noguchi sought to bring to the common experience of living. Bulb not included: incandescent 75W, A19.
