Herman Miller: Isamu Noguchi
What Makes the Noguchi Table Special
The Japanese American artist took materials such as stone, metal, wood, clay, bone, and paper and carved them into graceful, organic shapes. The Noguchi Coffee Table joins a curved, solid wood base with a freeform glass top. The ethereal result does not diminish the practical design: a sturdy and durable table. This balance of sculptural form and everyday function has made the Noguchi Table an understated and beautiful element in homes and offices since its introduction in 1948.
"Everything is sculpture. Any material, any idea without hindrance born into space, I consider sculpture." - Isamu Noguchi
