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 trusted the sculptor's task was to shape space, to offer it order and meaning, and that art must "disappear", or be as one with its surroundings. Maybe it was his dual birthright‐his father was a Japanese poet, his mother a Scottish‐American writer‐that resulted in his way of looking at the world with an eye for "oneness".
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.
