Is the Noguchi table stable?

1 Answer
Is the Noguchi table stable?
Yes, the Noguchi table is stable due to the unique design of the base. Its two parts lock together, creating a tripod that ensures stability beneath the gleaming glass top while lending the table an open, weightless quality. In 1944, Isamu Noguchi created the first version of his classic coffee table as a riff on a piece he designed for former MoMA president, A. Conger Goodyear, five years earlier. According to design lore, industrial designer, journalist and Herman Miller design director George Nelson visited Noguchi while working on an article titled “How to Make a Table” and found him at work on a prototype for the piece that would become the Noguchi coffee table, which was later produced by Herman Miller.
