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.
The balance of sculptural configuration and durable usable has created the Noguchi Table an underrated and attractive element in homes and offices since it's introduction. Sharing a nearly identical shape and size as the indigenous glass Noguchi Coffee Table, this 'sculptural', 'visually light', or 'deceptively ' simple coffee table''; stands on '2 chrome' hairpin‐legs and one in wood reminiscent of a ship's rudder. Obtainable in White Ash, Walnut or Ebony table top finishes.
Other notable commissions include the gardens for the UNESCO Building in Paris, five fountains for the Supreme Court Building in Tokyo and a high‐relief mural for the Abelardo Rodriguez Market in Mexico City. Noguchi died in 1988 after a brilliant career that spanned more than six decades. For someone who was told by his first art teacher at age 15 that he'd "never be a sculptor", he left an amazing legacy.
