Akari model XP1 light sculpture by Isamu Noguchi. The shade is made from handmade washi paper and bamboo ribs with Noguchi Akari manufacturer's stamp. Akari light sculptures by Isamu Noguchi are considered icons of 1950s modern design. Designed by Noguchi in the 1950s, this vintage example is from a later production run that was still largely handmade by Ozeki, the original manufacturer in Gifu, Japan and bears the Noguchi stamp of authenticity.
