Gibraltar Furniture is proud to offer the Noguchi Inspired Coffee Table for only $499. This iconic piece has become famous for its unique and unmistakable simplicity. Refined and at the same time natural, it is one of the most sought after pieces associated with the modern classic furniture movement.
The brilliantly simple design consists of only three elements, the glass top and two interlocking wood base pieces. The table is an extraordinary harmony of form and function.
Sculptor Isamu Noguchi’s coffee table joins a curved, solid wood base with a freeform glass top. The ethereal result does not diminish the practical design: a sturdy and durable table. This balance 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. Unwilling and unable to be pigeonholed, Noguchi created sculptures using any medium he could get his hands on: stone, metal, wood, clay, bone, paper, or a mixture of any or all–carving, casting, cutting, pounding, chiseling, or dynamiting away as each form took shape.
“To limit yourself to a particular style may make you an expert of that particular viewpoint or school, but I do not wish to belong to any school,” he said. “I am always learning, always discovering.” Noguchi believed the sculptor’s task was to shape space, to give it order and meaning, and that art should “disappear,” or be as one with its surroundings.
Noguchi’s coffee table consists of three pieces. A freeform, 3/4″ plate-glass top resting on two curved, solid wood legs that interlock to form a tripod for self-stabilizing support. Herman Miller sells the official licensed version of this table for $1146. Gibraltar offers a re-production Noguchi style table for
