Isamu Noguchi, Noguchi Isamu, November 17, 1904December 30, 1988) was a prominent Japanese-American artist and landscape architect whose artistic career spanned six decades, from the 1920s onward.

Known widely for his sculpture and public works, Noguchi also designed stage sets for various Martha Graham productions, and several mass-produced lamps and furniture pieces, some of which are still manufactured and sold.

This Japanese designer sought to make sculpture useful in everyday life and his furniture and interior designs are an important part of this project. Noguchi most actively worked in this field during the 1940s, creating furniture and interiors that displayed the biomorphic imagery of his contemporary sculpture. After the Second World War Noguchi traveled to Japan. In 1951 he created the first paper and bamboo Akari lams. Noguchi continued to design new Akari models for the rest of his career.

This classic brilliantly simple design consists of only three elements, the glass top, and two interlocking wood base pieces. The table is an extraordinary harmony of form and function.
