Isamu Noguchi, 1948
Herman Miller®, U.S.A.
One of the most recognizable icons of American modernism, the Noguchi Coffee Table is a perfect balance—literally—between art and furniture. Sculptor Isamu Noguchi created his distinctive table by joining a curved, wood base with a freeform glass top. The ethereal result does not diminish the practical design—a sturdy and durable table. This marriage of sculptural form and everyday function has made the Noguchi table an understated and beautiful element in homes and offices since its introduction in 1948.
The table is just three pieces. A 3/4-inch plate-glass top rests on two curved, solid wood legs that interlock to form a tripod for self-stabilizing support. Although it looks delicate, it is solid, perfectly balanced, durable. It's also a good size: 15-3/4 inches high, 50 inches wide, 36 inches deep.
The solid wood base of the table is available in Noguchi black, walnut, natural cherry, and white ash. The newly released 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.
When a piece of furniture is so distinctive and desired, copycats come out of the woodwork. To let you know that your table is authentic, the signature of Isamu Noguchi appears on the longest edge of the glass top and on a medallion to the underside of the base. Under the medallion, his initials are stamped into the base.
