About the Item

This iconic table has a base of two black lacquered solid wood sculptures hinged on a hidden aluminum pin . 3/4" glass top is a bio morphic triangle with rounded corners . Originally designed in mid 1940s designated as the IN- 50 table . This example is of later production maybe 1968 . Recently purchased from the estate of the original owner . Base has been correctly refinished retains original Alcoa aluminum pin . Glass top does have faint and few minor scratches no edge chips . A clean original . Upon being asked by George Nelson to do something to illustrate an article he wished to write called “How to Make a Table,” Noguchi used an idea heI had previously worked on . A continuous loop of wood cut it in two so that when joined , swiveled in the middle, it would still serve to support a glass top and function as a table. Isamu Noguchi was active as a sculptor throughout the United States and internationally for much of the 20th century. His work is not limited to one art movement or style.
