Sculptural Delight

The Noguchi Rudder Table is both surface and sculpture. Its asymmetrical yet balanced composition marries nature with industry, beauty with function. The shape of its veneered top and the combination of metal and wood legs are true to Noguchi's original design.

  • Organic Form

    Organic Form

    Much like the designer's iconic glass-topped table, the Rudder Table exemplifies Noguchi's skillful use of deceptively simple organic forms to create highly functional and beautiful furniture.

  • Visual Lightness

    Visual Lightness

    The table's name stems from the character of its single wood leg support, which is reminiscent of a ship's rudder. Paired with two metal hairpin legs, the table seems to rest on the rudder leg, lending a visual lightness and grace to the whole.

  • A Choice of Finishes

    Trivalent chrome steel legs offer a pleasing contrast to the natural look of the rudder and top—available in Walnut, White Ash, and Ebony.
