Cyclone Dining Table designed by Isamu Noguchi from Knoll
At A Glance: The Noguchi Cyclone Dining Table was produced in 1953 as an experiment with wire and wood, at first as a kind of rocking stool. Eventually, though, the materials led most clearly to a table, and the table Noguchi ended up with stands as one of the finer achievements in furniture design. Playful and fine, the Cyclone Dining Table is considered a companion piece to the world-famous Bertoia wire chair.
Reintroduced by Knoll in collaboration with the Noguchi foundation, the Cyclone Table is now being meticulously produced from Noguchi's original drawings. Its sculptural base consists of a twisting column of chrome-plated steel wires set into a cast-iron black porcelain-finished foot. Knoll is the Cyclone Table's only authorized manufacturer and each piece features a signature plate under the table top bearing the Knoll Studio logo and Isamu Noguchi's signature.
What's To Like:
A sculptural piece of furniture if there ever was one, this table brings an aesthetic quality few can match.
Modern is often black, white, and metal - and the Cyclone Table is no exception. It'll fit right in with your other furnishings.
Just the right size for a small dining room or breakfast nook.
What's Not to Like:
Pedigree is often costly, and the Cyclone Table fits that description.
If you plan to entertain, this table's too small. It'll seat 4, tops - and that's if you choose the 42" size.
The Bottom Line: Noguchi's penchant for creating useful sculpture is well-known, thanks to his famous coffee table. Add the Cyclone Table to that category - it fits right in with many of the most beautifully useful pieces from the Mid-Century period. You'll love the way it plays with space and light in your home.
Isamu Noguchi Japanese-American designer, Isamu Noguchi, left medical school at Columbia University to attend sculpture classes at the Leonardo da Vinci Art School. Within three months, Noguchi had his first exhibition and was elected into the National Sculpture Society. Noguchi not only worked in sculpture, but he designed sets and costumes for the New York City Ballet and the Martha Graham company. His work can be seen throughout the United States and Japan. Toward the end of his life, Noguchi ensured his collection would be available for public viewing at the Noguchi Museum in Long Island, New York.
