    Perhaps the most beautiful table lamp in Isamu Noguchi's Akari light sculptures is model 9AD designed in 1951 and crafted entirely by and in Japan by Ozeki. From the forming of the tripod base with metal supporting frame and handle, to the creation of the saucer-balloon shaped form, each Akari Light Sculpture 9AD TABLE lamp is built to Noguchi's original specifications. With its simple, decorative shape and abundant diffused illumination, the Isamu Noguchi Akari lamps are considered icons of modern design and Japanese lighting design. Our official authentic Akari Noguchi saucer lamp models have a stamped red sun and half moon with Japan written under the symbol on the shade along with the signature "I. Noguchi". Ozeki & CO Table Lamp Lamp Model 9AD is made and imported from Japan.

    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).
