Isamu Noguchi

Isamu Noguchi (1904 – 1988) was an American artist and landscape architect whose artistic career spanned six decades. He is known for his sculpture and public artworks, as well as his designs for stage sets and mass-produced furniture. In 1947, Noguchi began working with the Herman Miller company to produce a catalog of modern furniture, which included the iconic Noguchi table.

His work is still exhibited around the world, and a museum in New York City is dedicated to his life and work.
