Noguchi Rudder Coffee Table
Isamu Noguchi’s sculptural coffee table is an updated archival design featuring an organically shaped top and a trio of legs—two metal hairpins and a rudder-like support providing balanced asymmetry. The beveled-edge top is available in walnut, ebony on maple, or white ash veneers with matching wood leg. The table’s sleek sophistication makes it a striking centerpiece for any sitting area. Produced by Herman Miller®, a manufacturer in MoMA’s collection, from Noguchi’s 1949 design. Made in the USA.

At 15, Isamu Noguchi’s Art teacher declared that he'd “never be a sculptor.” Fortunately, he didn’t listen to that discouraging prediction. He went on to become an artist and designer whose work transcended stylistic silos, movements, and cultures. His propensity for overlooking labels and borders may have stemmed from his family: His Japanese father was a poet and his Scottish-American mother a writer. “I do not wish to belong to any school,” he said. “I am always learning, always discovering.” His wide-ranging work includes the gardens for the UNESCO Building in Paris and fountains for Tokyo’s Supreme Court Building. His collaboration with Herman Miller began when one of his designs was used to illustrate George Nelson’s article, “How to Make a Table.” That design became his iconic coffee table, introduced in 1947. 28 examples of his designs are included in MoMA’s collection, illustrating the breadth of his work across various media and styles.
