Noguchi Table: A New Concept of Shape

The noguchi table is one of the most famous and high priced coffee table: but in its price you can find an object with the unique style of the Japan-American artist. Indeed Isamu Noguchi got the ability of using and melting together various materials: he was a polyhedral artist and worked in the field of design, of architecture and also in the field of scenography, with the creations of some works that entered in the history of modern architecture and design.

And the noguchi table is expensive than other models of coffee table because of these unique stylistic characteristics.
The style of the noguchi table made it immediately recognizable among the other similar tables: this object is recognizable at the first sight, for its absolutely simple style (at least in appearance). Indeed this model of coffee table was projected by Isamu Noghuchi in only three pieces, two wooden pieces for the base and one glassed piece for the top.

But in this apparent simplicity you can found also the beauty and the elegance of this object. The shape of the noguchi table is similar to the marble and bronzed sculpture of its creator, particularly for the harmony of the shapes.

Isamu Noguchi had an extraordinary range of projects, that included playgrounds and plazas, furniture and gardens, the stone-carved busts, and Akari paper lights, so delicate they could be folded and put into an envelope. He also designed numerous stage sets for dancer-choreographer Martha Graham, who was as much an influence on him as was his mentor, Constantin Brancusi.

Other notable commissions include the gardens for the UNESCO Building in Paris, five fountains for the Supreme Court Building in Tokyo, and a high-relief mural for the Abelardo Rodriguez Market in Mexico City

Isamu Noguchi, born in 1904 in Los Angeles to the Japanese poet Yone Noguchi and the American writer Leonie Gilmour, studied at Columbia University and the Leonardo da Vinci Art School.
He subsequently established his first independent studio and received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1927. Noguchi became an assistant to Constantin Brancusi in Paris and presented his first solo exhibition in New York. After studying brush drawing in China, he travelled to Japan to work with clay under the master potter Jinmatsu Uno.

His experiences living and working in different cultural circles are reflected in Isamu Noguchi's work as an artist. He is considered a universal talent with a creative oeuvre that went beyond sculpture to encompass stage sets, furniture, lighting, interiors as well as outdoor plazas and gardens. His sculptural style is indebted to a vocabulary of organic forms and exerted a sustained influence on the design of the 1950s.

If you will choose the noguchi table for your home or office, maybe you will pay it more compared to other models of coffe table, but you will buy not only a coffee table, but also an unique object. The style of the noguchi table justifies an high price and give to your home and office a touch of great elegance.
