Prismatic Table

Isamu Noguchi, 1957

Following a purely geometric design, the Prismatic Table takes inspiration from traditional Japanese paper folding techniques. The side table comprises three elements made of folded sheet aluminium with a high-quality powder-coated finish. Joined together they form a three-legged table with a hexagonal top.

Isamu Noguchi originally designed the Prismatic Tables in a combination of different colours, which reveal captivating kaleidoscope-like patterns when the tables are arranged together. Vitra has returned to this original idea and now produces the Prismatic Table in three versions, each featuring three parts in different combinations of muted shades of grey.
