Product Description

Noguchi Coffee Table

The Noguchi Coffee Table was originally designed in 1939 as a commission from the president of MoMA and is now featured in the Museum’s collection. Noguchi modified the design in 1944 to accompany an article by designer George Nelson, entitled, "How to Make a Table." This design reflects the biomorphic imagery of Noguchi's contemporary sculpture. It consists of just three pieces: a free-form plate-glass top with flat polished edges, and a self-stabilizing tripod made of two interlocking curved legs of solid or ebonized walnut. With its successful balance of sculptural form and everyday function, this piece is one of Isamu Noguchi's best-known designs. Made by Herman Miller®.

History

Mid-Century Design

Following World War II, a number of factors combined to foster a new direction in home products and furniture. New materials, such as molded plywood and plastic, and advances in mass production techniques opened a world of design options. Through the efforts of companies like Herman Miller, their longtime design director George Nelson, and the influential team of Charles and Ray Eames, these new designs could be produced for a broad market. A new vocabulary of ergonomic form, versatile function, and synthetic material emerged—and some of the most beloved furniture of the century was created.
