A Modern Interpretation of Wabi-Sabi: AKARI Lamps Inspired by Washi Paper

Feb 20,2023 | Hoshino

For centuries, the art of lighting design has evolved alongside cultural and technological advancements. AKARI lamps, drawing inspiration from the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, seamlessly blend tradition with contemporary aesthetics. These lamps have a rich history, rooted in the vision of Isamu Noguchi, a renowned Japanese-American artist who sought to showcase the beauty of washi paper. Collaborating with local artisans in Gifu, Japan, Noguchi created a series of AKARI lamps that embody simplicity, asymmetry, and the delicate allure of natural materials.

Let's explore a selection of AKARI lamp models, each offering a unique interpretation of the interplay between light and washi paper:

Akari 1A 

With its clean geometric shape and a washi paper shade, the Akari 1A emits a soft and diffused light that fills the room with a tranquil glow. Its minimalist design makes it versatile for any interior, adding elegance to spaces such as living rooms, bedrooms, or studies.

Akari 10A

The Akari 10A lamp captivates with its sculptural form, reminiscent of a folded paper lantern. Its washi paper shade creates an enchanting ambiance by casting beautiful shadows and infusing the surroundings with serenity and natural beauty.

Akari 14A

Featuring an elongated shape, the Akari 14A lamp stands out as a statement piece. The washi paper shade, delicately wrapped around a frame, emits a warm and inviting glow. Whether used as a floor lamp or placed on a console table, it adds a touch of modern elegance to any space.
