Isamu Noguchi 1950 Akari table lamp
A nice mix of 1950s period lighting with traditional Japanese design - the Isamu Noguchi 1950 Akari table lamp.
It's new to the MoMA online store, although original Isamu Noguchi Akari designs have been in the museum's collection for decades. This reissue is faithful to that era, when electricity was added to the traditional paper lantern.
It's handmade from washi paper and bamboo ribbing, supported by a metal frame and able to support a 40w bulb. You can buy one for $125, which is around £65.
