Summary
It was a visit to the Oseki traditional Chochin lantern workshop in Gifu in 1951 that inspired Isamu Noguchi's unusually-shaped lamps, in which candles were replaced by electric light. Noguchi's Akari Lamps were first sold in Japan in 1952 and were marketed internationally from 1955 onwards. Akari lamps are hand-crafted out of softly translucent washi paper and higo bamboo; they are quintessentially light and delicate. Noguchi says Akari lamps "seem to unfold and expand in a way that is magical and beyond anything material"
