Akari 9AD


Size: L 46 x H 69 cm

AKARI, which means light in Japanese, diffuses a soft and solar light.

The 9AD lamp is part of the A series, the first series of models designed by Isamu Noguchi in the 1950s. It is the blue screen-printed version of the 9A lamp, one of the most iconic silhouettes in the Akari collection. Its shape modernises the traditional Japanese lanterns that inspired it.

These tripod lights differ from the other AKARI lights in their structure: two bamboo rings hold the screen-printed washi paper on either side, for a more traditional design.

Isamu Noguchi liked to say that "to create a home, all you need is a room, a tatami mat and an AKARI".

La collection de luminaires AKARI, dessinée par Isamu Noguchi à partir de 1952, est le fruit d’un véritable travail artisanal perpétué depuis le VIIe siècle.

Each Akari is handcrafted, beginning with the making of washi paper from the inner bark of the mulberry tree. The paper is then glued and shaped on a supple frame of Higo bamboo ribbing, creating a delicate but powerful lighting sculpture.

The soft and warm glow of light casting through the paper transforms “the harshness of electricity back to the light of our origins – the sun – so that its warmth may continue to fill our rooms at night” as explained by Noguchi himself.
