    Classic style Japanese metal, bamboo and rice paper (washi) electric lantern with a simple yet modern design by legendary Akari-lamp artist; Isamu Noguchi. A mid century take on traditional Japanese lanterns, the hand-finished Washi Paper white table lamp emits a soft glow through the crinkled, organic paper. Our simple yet subtle, stunning Noguchi Japanese paper lantern collection is carefully yet sturdily crafted by hand in Japan. Isamu Noguchi's Akari 20N table light sculpture is fashioned from handmade natural washi paper which lights up beautifully in the dark. The 20N Noguchi Table Lamp is supported by 4 slender metal legs, a little carrying handle and a bamboo supporting frame. From the forming of the elegant metal base and handle to the creation of the Japanese lantern lamp shade, each Model 20N Akari 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 20N 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).
