Designed by Isamu Noguchi in 1957, as one of the most elegant furniture designs in the 20th century, this sculptured dining table got its name by the structure of the base reflecting the eye of a storm. The cast iron ring-shaped base offers weighty support with a light aesthetic. The table features a thick 15mm plywood top and chromed stainless steel base. A perfect kitchen table or can also be used in the office as a small meeting room table. Comfortably seats 4 people, available in a black or white top.
Isamu Noguchi, born in 1904, was an important sculptor and designer, who fused Eastern and Western influences in his works of stone and steel.
In 1927 and 1928, Noguchi received Guggenheim Fellowships, which allowed him to travel to Paris, where he worked as studio assistant to Constantin Brancusi, learning about stone sculpture and meeting other important European artists. Profoundly influenced by Brancusi, Noguchi began to create sculpture in stone, wood, and sheet metal upon his return to New York. A year later he departed again to travel through China and Japan, where he studied traditional Asian art, which also deeply impacted his aesthetic. In 1947, Noguchi produced some of the most recognizable designs of the burgeoning American Modernism movement such as the Noguchi coffee table.
Noguchi achieved great fame critical success during the last two decades of his life, among other accolades, the Whitney Museum and Walker Art Center held retrospectives of his work in 1968 and 1978, respectively, and Noguchi represented the United States in the Venice Biennale in 1986. Noguchi received the Edward MacDowell Medal for Outstanding Lifetime Contribution to the Arts in 1982, the National Medal of Arts in 1987, and the Order of the Sacred Treasure from the Japanese government in 1988.
