Akari 10A floor lamp
The Akari 10A floor lamp is part of Akari's light sculptures, designed by the American Japanese artist and designer Isamu Noguchi in 1951. He chose the name "Akari" for these objects, a word that means "light" in Japanese and means both lighting and physical lightness.
The inspiration for the design of his lights came from a visit to the Japanese fishing village of Gifu, where Noguchi watched the fishermen at work. Not only do they use trained cormorants for hunting, they also use lanterns to attract fish. These lanterns had bamboo ribs covered with fine paper.
He took the design of these traditional lanterns as an opportunity to create even light sculptures out of wood and paper. For the 10A floor lamp, the designer uses paper from the mulberry tree, as it softens the light, makes it soft and distributes it evenly.
