Artist Review: Isamu Noguchi

Noguchi, was a Japanese American artist. He designed furniture that looks like sculpture and the materials used are handmade paper from Japan. The "Akari"series of paper lamps are his most famous works. The lamps are created by handmade paper and bamboo ribbing, supported by thin metal frame. The lamps give a blend of Japanese handcraft and modern look, which can be used in modern home space.
