Our Isamu Noguchi Cylinder Lamp is the ideal addition to a sleek, minimalist dining room or modernist dining room, offering both pared-back style and excellent distribution of light. Consisting of three sturdy wooden legs and a soft, tactile fabric shade, it fits effortlessly into almost any environment, adding a dash of classic American panache to any room. And with its rounded shape and cream finish, it's a welcome addition to both home and office.
The three-legged Cylinder Lamp was one of Isamu Noguchi's first forays into lighting design and was aimed to be the perfect complement, both visually and in lighting terms for his range of tables. Originally made as a present for his sister, it went on to become one of his most popular and often-imitated designs, combining the simplicity of American Modernism with the classic Japanese simplicity that influenced so much of what he did.
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.
