Our Isamu Noguchi Coffee Table is the perfect balance between art and furniture. The triangular glass top is balanced on a curved wood base, to create a distinctive, sculptural marriage between design and practicality. Surprisingly sturdy and durable, the table has an understated elegance that looks beautiful in any home. We have taken great measures to ensure our reproduction meets the high standards set by Isamu Noguchi. The glass top is tempered for extra strength. The wooden base is hand-carved from the highest quality wood and is available in oak, walnut or black-stained ash. The result is an extremely high quality reproduction that is as stunning as the original.
'Everything is sculpture,' said Isamu Noguchi. This guiding principle is reflected in all of Isamu Noguchi's work, and this unique coffee table is a prime example. Designed in 1944, the table is a development of a rosewood and glass table that Isamu Noguchi built in 1939 for the President of the New York Museum of Modern Art.
1904-1988 (United States)
With a Japanese poet for a father and Scottish-American writer for a mother, it is not surprisingly that Isamu Noguchi inherited a strong creative streak. He was a prominent Japanese American artist and architect whose career spanned six decades, from the 1920s onward. Unwilling to be labelled, Noguchi created sculptures that could be as abstract as Henri Moore's or as realistic as Da Vinci's. He used any medium he could get his hands on: stone, metal, wood, clay, bone, paper - carving, casting, cutting, pounding, or dynamiting away as each form took shape.
