Isamu Noguchi, 1944
The sculptor and designer Isamu Noguchi described the Coffee Table as his best furniture design – no doubt because it is reminiscent of his biomorphic sculptures in bronze and marble from the same period, translating the typical forms of the latter into a piece of sculptural furniture. The heavy plate glass top of the Coffee Table rests on two identical wooden elements placed at right angles.
- Table top: heavy glass, 19 mm, ground rounded edges.
- Base: solid ash in black, walnut or maple, lacquered finish, rounded edges.
- Origin of wood: ash (Fraxinus excelsior), walnut (Juglans nigra) and maple (Acer platanoides) from Western Europe and/or Poland.
