This is the famous Noguchi table, very classic, brilliantly simple design.
The design of wood and glass blended together is a work of art, like a sculpture! very graceful piece!
The base is made of 2 interlocking wood pieces,simple and elegant.
This table shows an ideal blend of form and function.
I love this piece!
I dunno, I think my wife likes them, but I always take one look and think (to myself :-), “wow, that’s ugly.” Sure it is clever and all, but I just don’t get the aesthetic. Fundamentally I think that glass surfaces without any “edging” in steel or wood or plastic or whatever are just /wrong/ to my eyes.
