Dining Table, designed by Isamu Noguchi, 1954/55.
The Dining Table by the artist and designer Isamu Noguchi is one the most elegant dining tables in the history of twentieth-century design. A variation on his Rocking Stool design, the table echoes its central pedestal base made of chrome-plated rods. The rods connect to a cast iron base ring to securely support the table and provide stability, but without appearing heavy. The table top is available in two sizes.
Material: Table Top: plywood with hard laminate surface, black-stained edge. Base: cast iron with black lacquer finish, chrome-plated steel wire.
