Light sculpture: Akari floor lamp 13A by Vitra

So that the warmth of the sun can continue to fill the rooms at night, the artist Isamu Noguchi created the Akari Light Scultptures from washi paper. The choice of material was intended to make the cool electricity look like sunlight.

Light up your life

The term Akari comes from the Japanese and means light and brightness. It is not surprising that the artist of the Akari series chose this name for his collection. The luminaires produce a particularly warm and pleasant light.

The 13A is one of 100 models produced, all of which are elaborately handcrafted in the Ozeki manufactory in Gifu, a traditional family business. First, bamboo rods are stretched over the original wooden form by Noguchi. They form the ribbing onto which the washi paper is then applied. After drying, the wooden form is removed and the umbrella can be folded, packed and shipped.

Material and format

The umbrella is made of partly painted washi paperwith finishes of wood and bamboo. The feet are made of painted steel wire. The lamp has a diameter of 49 cm and is 136 cm high.
