Beut Says

Fashioning a similar look to the Akari 1A , the Akari 1AD Table Lamp depicts a distinct visual difference that creates a whole new experience. Also designed by Isamu Noguchi in 1951, the 1AD version features a dark, contrasting pattern across the top region of the shade. The pattern starts as a circle, lengthens down in a straight line and ends in a circle, repeating around the entire surface. This unique touch of Japanese-inspired style adds to the harmonious vibe that the light sculpture so clearly exudes.

The Akari 1AD is made with traditional washi paper - a key material across each piece in the series. Finished with a bamboo/steel wire structure and painted steel wire legs, this light sculpture balances the harshness of electricity with the softness of the delicate washi paper in the most beautiful way. This was Noguchi's goal - to flaunt the raw expression of the sun.

All of the Akari pieces are made by a family-run company in Gifu known as the "Ozeki Workshop." It is here where the Akari 1AD is handmade and produced with absolute passion and extreme care. After construction, the sculpture is marked with a signature sun-and-moon logo to indicate its authenticity.
