Noguchi Rudder Table

The Noguchi Rudder Table is both surface and sculpture. Its asymmetrical yet balanced composition marries nature with industry, beauty with function. The shape of its veneered top and the combination of metal and wood legs are true to Noguchi’s original design. Two subtle metal hairpin legs suggest the top rests on the rudder-shaped leg, lending a visual lightness and grace to the whole.

Organic form

Much like the designer’s iconic glass-topped table, the Rudder coffee table exemplifies Noguchi’s skilful use of deceptively simple organic forms to create highly functional and beautiful furniture. Designed in 1944 and introduced for sale in 1949, the Rudder series originally included coffee and dining-height tables, as well as stools. To distinguish this authentic reproduction, we have etched Noguchi’s signature on a medallion affixed to the underside of the top.
