Originally designed in 1939 as a commission from the then-president of MoMA, Noguchi modified the design in 1944 to accompany an article by designer George Nelson, entitled, 'How to Make a Table.' This design reflects the biomorphic imagery of Noguchi's contemporary sculpture. It consists of just three pieces: a free-form plate-glass top with flat polished edges, and a self-stabilizing tripod made of two interlocking, curved legs of solid or ebonized walnut. With its successful balance of sculptural form and everyday function, this piece is one of Noguchi's best-known designs! Pure and Sexy!
