Vitra’s Akari 7A Table Lamp is one of an extensive collection, conceptualised in 1951 by Japanese-American artist and designer, Isamu Noguchi.

A Japanese design classic, the Akari collection, designed by Isamu Noguchi in 1951, are to this day still hand-crafted in a family workshop in Gifu, Japan. Traditional dried Washi paper, derived from the Mulberry tree, is sculpted over a metal frame, supported by thin, delicate legs. This produces a gentle and refined form, adding simplicity and unique styling to your chosen space. The collection, comprising of over 100 distinctive models, has guaranteed authenticity by way of a makers mark, in this case, a logo of a stylised sun and moon, designed to resemble the corresponding Japanese characters.
