a momentary vignette | a brief, beautiful glimpse of architecture, design, and art!


Akari
December 27

Created in the 1950s by artist and designer Isamu Noguchi, Akari is a term that literally means light. Made from mulberry bark paper, bamboo, and wire, these beautiful light sculptures were inspired by the traditional paper lanterns of Japan. The simple and fragile elegance of Akari appeared in many forms... each casting a reassuring glow of light, gently filtered through the shoji-like paper body.
