Designer: Isamu Noguchi
The original glass coffee table created by sculptor Isamu Noguchi in 1948. This classic combination of art and function is available with a variety of base finish options.
One unique vision, one piece of freeform glass, two perfectly and delicately balanced pieces of wood. It is often imitated, but never equaled.
Is it art, or is it furniture? It’s both. The sleek, aerodynamic lines of the Noguchi table make it at home everywhere, in interiors from mid-century modern to traditional. It's beautiful enough to satisfy your desire for elegance, yet sturdy enough to handle daily use.
"Art should become as one with its surroundings."Isamu Noguchi View Design Story
The table is just three pieces. A ¾-inch freeform glass top rests on two curved, solid wood legs that interlock to form a self-stabilizing tripod. Although it looks delicate, it is solid, perfectly balanced, durable.
The solid wood base of the table is available in a variety of finishes including Noguchi black and white ash. The ash base is finished with a process that arrests the wood in its natural, “freshly cut” state. The resulting color is a creamy white that will not turn yellow or golden over time. This white ash base is a beautiful complement to the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman with white ash veneer and pearl premium leather.
In a long lifetime of creative work, Isamu Noguchi designed gardens and plazas, fountains and murals, furniture and paper lamps, and stage sets for modern dance pioneer Martha Graham. However, hesaid that of all the furniture designs he created, the glass coffee table that bears his name represented his only true success.
To distinguish the real Noguchi glass coffee table from the cheap knockoffs, we have etched Noguchi’s signature on the longest edge of the glass top and on a medallion on the underside of the base.
