A fantastic “Akari” Floor Lamp designed by Isamu Noguchi and manufactured by Ozeki & Co. in Japan around 1950. This exquisite floor lamp showcases the timeless elegance of Isamu Noguchi’s design philosophy. The lamp features a cast iron base with distinctive bamboo accents. The paper hood, crafted with precision and attention to detail, diffuses the light, creating a warm and inviting ambiance in any space. The combination of cast iron, bamboo, and paper in this lamp’s construction reflects the harmonious blend of traditional Japanese craftsmanship and modern design sensibilities. The contrast between the sturdy cast iron base and the delicate paper hood adds a unique visual appeal to the piece, making it a focal point in any room. Isamu Noguchi, a visionary artist and designer, was known for his ability to merge art and functionality seamlessly. The “Akari” series, including this floor lamp, is inspired by the organic shapes and natural materials found in traditional Japanese lanterns. Akari is a Japanese term that means “light” both in the sense of illumination, but also weightlessness. Noguchi’s work has left an indelible mark on the world of design, and his creations continue to be highly sought after by collectors and design enthusiasts alike. It is signed in the paper hood as well as in the iron foot, as shown in photos. This particular “Akari” floor lamp remains in very good, vintage condition, with minor wear that is consistent with its age and use. It proudly displays a beautiful patina, a testament to its enduring quality and craftsmanship.
