noguchi prismatic table

Design Isamu Noguchi, 1957
Coated sheet Aluminum
Made in Germany by Vitra

Originally designed as part of a push to promote new uses for aluminum, the Noguchi Prismatic table is a stunning example of the harmonious marriage of his sculpture work and furniture design. Consisting of three independent pieces of aluminum joined together, this master-work evokes the Japanese art of origami. This is the first time the prismatic has been put into production and is produced in Germany by Vitra in close collaboration with the Noguchi Foundation. A hivemodern.com favorite!

Isamu Noguchi

Isamu Noguchi (1904 –1988) was a prominent Japanese American artist and landscape architect whose career spanned six decades, from the 1920s onward. Known for his sculpture and public works, Noguchi also designed stage sets for various Martha Graham productions, and several mass-produced lamps and furniture pieces, some of which are still manufactured and sold. In 1947, Noguchi began a collaboration with the Herman Miller company, when he joined with George Nelson, Paul László, and Charles Eames to produce a catalog containing what is often considered to be the most influential body of modern furniture ever produced, including the iconic Noguchi table which remains in production today. His work lives on around the world and at the Noguchi Museum in New York City.
Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitra’s approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the company’s contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.
