Make a Japanese design icon your own with the Akari 16A suspension light, the newest addition to Vitra's extensive family of Akari lights.

16A is the newest addition to the Vitra Akari lighting collection, conceptualised by Isamu Noguchi in 1951. The lamps are handcrafted from Japanese Washi paper, derived from the inner bark of the Mulberry tree. Once dried, this produces an extremely light yet versatile and flexible form that can be manipulated to the designer's desires, here being moulded into an asymmetrical spherical suspension lamp. Each Akari light's authenticity is guaranteed by the marking of a stylised sun and moon logo, designed to resemble the corresponding Japanese characters. Perfect for a variety of different environments, the 16A suspension light is a versatile yet iconic design that will illuminate your chosen space for years to come.
