This unusual and elegant Noguchi floor lamp (Akari Light Sculpture Model BB3 | X3) casts a beautiful glow.
The Noguchi Museum (http://shop.noguchi.org/bb3x3.html) says:
Akari Light Sculptures by Isamu Noguchi are considered icons of 1950s modern design. Designed by Noguchi beginning in 1951 and handmade for a half century by the original manufacturer in Gifu, Japan, the paper lanterns are a harmonious blend of Japanese handcraft and modernist form. The stand has a bamboo pole and a black cast iron base. The shade is made from handmade washi paper and bamboo ribbing. The lamp accommodates up to a 75 watt bulb (not included). Overall Dimensions: 18″ × 66″.
The shade has a 3" tear on the underside, which is not really noticeable.
