The Noguchi table's-Balance of sculptural form and durable function has made it an-Understated and beautiful element in homes and offices since its-Introduction in 1948.-The Noguchi Table has been part of the interior and industrial design-World for more than 60 years. It was first introduced by Herman Miller-In 1947, and it has maintained a sterling reputation, as well as high-Sales volumes, ever since. It's beautiful, classic, durable, perfectly-Balanced (literally, according to Herman Miller) and the very-Embodiment of elegance in a low table.-So whichever way you look at the table, from above or from below,-There will be a reflective design, a kind of hall-of-mirrors that-Produces calm rather than a loss of perspective.

The design is-Respectful of natural forms and of the environment, two traits that-Japanese architecture and art are known for.-We have haiku-esque simplicity and richness of design on the one hand,-And somewhat American forms (canoe, lake) on the other. It's a-Marriage of two cultures in one piece, produced by a man who was-Himself a product of an American-Japanese union. It's the natural-Ideals of Frank Lloyd Wright (himself inspired by the Japanese) and-The modern reliance on new forms married into a single beautiful-Package.-It isn't just sculptural beauty and organic poignancy that keeps this-Table at the top of the interior design food chain.

Just like-That, you have a three legged table with only two legs - a perfectly-Balanced and perfectly proportioned piece of living room furniture-That improves the space, will stand up to tests of strength and-Durability, and an ingenious, simple conversation piece and design-Achievement.

According to Herman Miller, it was Noguchi's belief that-Design should disappear into the environment, that it should merge-Into its surroundings. While the table is certainly calm and organic,-It's impossible for a design as stunningly well-executed as it is to-Disappear into anything, much less into the same mold as what-Surrounds it. No, this table stands out like any great piece of-Sculpture does - even if it is against its own even-tempered will.-Where does it fit in the home?-The Noguchi Table can fit into almost any room of your home. Though-Designed for the living room and great room, its organic structure and-Highly durable materials make it a natural fit for covered porches and-Outdoor spaces as well.

There are dozens of-Tables out there professing to be Noguchi's, or merely posing as them,-Hoping no one asks. But there is only one original, and it's made by-Herman Miller. How do you tell?-When the tables are made at Herman Miller manufacturing facilities,-They are stamped in two places with unmistakable seals of approval.-Along the longest side of the three quarter inch thick pane of glass,-You can see the signature of Isamu Noguchi, secured for Herman Miller-Through the offices and urgings of the Noguchi Foundation.
