At a quick glance, the fine metal hairpin legs almost vanish, proposing the top rests solely on the rudder‐shaped wood leg, communicating airiness to the whole. This is the authentic Noguchi Rudder Table produced by Herman Miller. Ships flat; easy assembly needed. Created in U.S.A.
Noguchi was intelligent, articulate and sensitive. During World War II, at a dark time in US history, he voluntarily entered a relocation camp for Japanese‐Americans in Arizona‐and then was unable to get permission to leave. After seven months, he was granted liberation.
His Rudder Table (1949) features an asymmetrical form composed of blended materials: warm wood and sleek chromed steel. The shape of its top‐the same as that of the renowned Noguchi® Table‐and the combination of metal and wood legs are true to Noguchi's original design.
