    The Akari 10A Floor Lamp is part of Noguchi's Light Sculptures and fashioned from traditional handmade Japanese washi fiber paper. Created by artist and sculptor Isamu Noguchi; these soft and gently light sculptures emit an ambient glow that is gently on the eyes and fits well in any room design. This Paper Lantern Floor Lamp is crafted entirely by hand in Japan. Each lamp is fashioned from handmade washi paper and bamboo ribbing and supported by a metal frame. The Model 10A Akari Japanese Floor Lamp accommodates up to a 60 watt bulb (incandescent light bulb included).

    In 1951 the Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi began to design the Akari Light Sculptures, a group of works handcrafted out of washi paper that eventually comprised over 100 luminaires – table, floor and ceiling lamps. He chose the name 'akari' for these objects, a word that means 'light' in Japanese, connoting both illumination and physical lightness.

    'The light of Akari is like the light of the sun filtered through the paper of washi. The harshness of electricity is thus transformed through the magic of paper back to the light of our origin – the sun – so that its warmth may continue to fill our rooms at night.'- Isamu Noguchi Light Bulb included with every Stardust purchase.

    Stardust always includes the required Akari light bulb (40W incandescent or similar).
