Homes-Noguchi Lanterns

Lamps designed by the late sculptor Isamu Noguchi are displayed on shelves at the gift shop of the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, N.Y. Japanese lanterns used for ancestor worship inspired Noguchi to design the lamps, which he called akari, the Japanese word for light. His widely imitated designs became classics of mid-20th century modern home design and the original designs are still sold by the Noguchi Museum and Foundation.
