The table that has everything is often sumptuously set for you, the guest. From the point of view of design and functionality you, the host, have done everything within your power to set the Isamu Noguchi Cyclone Dining Table, which literally tends to suck in the best company. The sea and heavens fuse in joyful anticipation at the tableâ€™s black hole base, whose sweeping rods spiral upward in a dramatic cyclone effect to join base and table top.
Since its introduction in 1953 the cyclone has raged without interruption, enthusing design lovers all over the world and continuing to knock us off our feet.
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.
