UF4-L8 Isamu Noguchi Floor Lamp
This is a 1980's Isamu Nochi Lamp purchased in Italy in the same period. The model which was designed by the American/Japanese sculptor is named UF4-L8; the shade is washi paper on bamboo ribbing and it would have been manufactuered in Gifu, Japan in the 1980's. The shades were then sent out to licenced manufactuerers across the world (in this case, Vitra), who then produced the hardware for each design. These fragile light sculptures are collectable when found in tact like this. Though there is some wear commesurate with age which must be expected.
