Akari Light Sculptures by Isamu Noguchi are considered icons of 1950s modern design. Designed by Noguchi beginning in 1951 and handmade for 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.  This is one of the more unique asymmetrical forms of this series.
