noguchi coffee table modern classic furniture

Isamu Noguchi designed the first version of this table, with a glass top resting on interconnected rosewood supports, for the private residence of MOMA President A. Conger Goodyear during the 1930s. Noguchi himself described Coffee Table as his best furniture design, no doubt because it is extremely reminiscent of his bronze and marble sculptures of the time. It is absolutely inspiring to see Noguchi’s influence on modern design to this day. Collection Vitra Design Museum, © The Isamu Noguchi Foundation.
