Akari UF3 – Q Floor Lamp
Price € 1.225,00Production time: Upon request
Since 1951, Isamu Noguchi has been designing a series of handmade lamps using the traditional washi paper of the Japanese artisan tradition. Akari Lights Sculptures are an example of beauty declined in infinite variations of extreme taste and suggestion, weightless works capable of floating in their own light and unconventional forms. A very thin three-legged base here supports the central body of the Akari UF3-Q floor lamp formed by an irregular polygon on which black spots stand out similar to eyes suspended towards nowhere. The suggestion created here escapes a precise definition, turning into one of the many mysteries of the land from which it originates.

Swiss by birth, Vitra is a unique company in many ways. Unique in its home collections, light and colorful; unique in its office furnishings, which combine in a masterful implementation design and ergonomics; unique for the designer parterre that enriches its catalog. Among prestigious historical re-enactments and fruitful collaborations, Vitra has always had the ability to relive the past and project to the future. However, Vitra is unique above all for Rolf Fehlbaum's corporate address, where the company transcends the business to fulfill wider social and cultural functions: the creation of a unique project such as Vitra Campus and the annexed Vitra Design Museum is an example.Read more
Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988) was a multifaceted artist whose work stands as a bridge between East and West. He himself embodies with his story the fusion of two cultures: he is in fact the illegitimate son of the famous Japanese poet Yone Noguchi and of the American writer Léonie Gilmour, born in the USA but raised in Japan, active throughout his life in both countries. After his studies at the Vinci Art School in New York he moved to Paris, where he became Constantin Brancusi's assistant and remained imbued with the bohemian atmosphere that characterized the artistic circles of the French capital. His sculptures, monumental and with strong plastic values, found positions in important public spaces. He has made use of the rich heritage of Japanese art several times in his career, such as the Zen gardens designed for the UNESCO palace in Paris or the tradition of paper lanterns, revisited in a modernized version in the Akari lamp collection. His work as a designer has left an important mark on American design culture, through large-scale works designed for Herman Miller and Knoll and revived by Vitra. He was also an appreciated theatrical set designer.Read more
