Akari Light Sculptures

Akari Light Sculptures by Isamu Noguchi are considered icons of modern design. Designed by Noguchi beginning in 1951 and handmade for over a half century by the original manufacturer in Gifu, Japan, the paper lanterns are a harmonious blend of Japanese handcraft and modernist form. The lamps are created from handmade washi paper and bamboo ribbing, supported by a metal frame.

Due to very high demand and the handmade nature of Akari, orders may require up to 7-10 days to ship and 3-4 weeks until delivery. Out of stock Akari models may require 6-18 weeks to become available.
