Isamu Noguchi (November 1, 1904-December 3, 1988) was an American artist and architect whose artistic career spanned six decades, from the 1920s onward. Known for his sculpture and public works, Noguchi also designed stage sets for Martha Graham productions, and several mass-produced lamps and furniture pieces, some of which are still produced in Japan to this day.
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. The lamp accommodates up to a 40 watt bulb (not included).
