Noguchi is well known for his lighting designs, and this one is certainly considered a classic.
“Akari Light Sculptures by Isamu Noguchi are considered icons of 1950s modern design. Designed by Noguchi beginning in 1951 and handmade for over half a century by the original manufacturer in Gifu, Japan, the paper lanterns are a harmonious blend of Japanese handcraft and modernist form. Created from handmade washi paper and bamboo ribbing, and supported by a metal frame.”
