Classic design coffee table
This famous Noguchi coffee table has three parts: the glass top and the two pieces of dark brown wood that form the base. At first glance, it seems that it was sculpted rather than designed – the evident result of the author’s “biomorphic” imagination. Designed by Noguchi in 1939 for A. Conger Goodyear, who was the director of the Museum of Modern art in New York, it was later given to the architect Robsjohn-Gibbins, in order to look for a manufacturer. But in 1945 – when Noguchi was in a Japanese-American internment camp – Robsjohn- Gibbins put on the market a slightly modified version of the table, and arrogated himself the intellectual property of the design; consequently, Noguchi accused him of plagiarism. Thanks to George Nelson – who appreciated Noguchi very much – the production of the table started beginning to the early 1950s. Open pore lacquered ash wood frame. Glass top.
100% Made in Italy. Open pore black, cherry wood or walnut lacquered ash wood frame. Glass top, 15 or 19 mm thickness.
