The paper lanterns come from China and then were disseminated in Japan where talented masters have produced the lanterns for the simple Japanese aesthetics. Isamu Noguchi was inspired by the lanterns made in Gifu and has designed a line of reduced design and modern forms, including the simple ball-shaped hanging lamp, in 1951. His Akari light sculptures series, which includes pendant lights, table lamps and floor lamps, has been well received and has been an icon of Midcentury design. Later one has begun producing Noguchi lanterns in China.

Paper lanterns have been never more popular than it is today. This is completely understandable, it is up to the simple, unpretentious and timeless design of this lamp. They are available in a variety of colors and sizes, and are so inexpensive that you can buy it for party decor.

If you can afford it to you, I recommend the original by Noguchi. The manufacture of Akari pendant lights by Noguchi – and the entire light sculptures series took place only at Ozeki from 1951, and manufacture adheres lanterns strictly to the traditional technology for Japanese Gifu. You are hand-made from washi paper made from mulberry tree bark. The bamboo ribs are stretched with wooden forms and washi paper strip pasted on both sides of the border. Then, the internal wooden moulds are taken out. As a result, you get a flexible form of paper that can be packed for shipping.
