Description from Canoe
Envisioned as a modern interpretation of traditional Japanese lanterns, Akari Lamps were created in the 1950s by Japanese-American sculptor and designer Isamu Noguchi and they remain essential classics today. Hand crafted by a cottage industry in Japan of mulberry paper over a bamboo structure, they create a soft, welcoming light in any interior application. No comparison to low-quality copies, each Akari piece features a symbol of authenticity as an authorized edition of the Isamu Noguchi Foundation.
