Vitra Noguchi Coffee Table
Pre-Order Lead Time: 16 - 18 weeks
Designed by Isamu Noguchi, 1944
In creating his design for the Coffee Table, Isamu Noguchi translated the biomorphic aesthetic of his sculptural works into a piece of furniture with distinctive organic forms. Presumably for this reason, Noguchi regarded the table as his best furniture design. Two identical wooden leg elements are positioned at a right angle to one another as a stable support for the heavy, sturdy glass top.
The oeuvre of Japanese-American artist and designer Isamu Noguchi is unusually multi-faceted, ranging from the fine arts to industrial design. Since 2002, Vitra has produced re-editions of his designs in cooperation with the Isamu Noguchi Foundation in New York.
