At Home: Isamu Noguchi Throws Us a Curve

Isamu Noguchi was a sculptor, an artist and a designer known for rounded, organic shapes. His iconic takes on the Japanese paper lanterns and his three-legged coffee tables are modern icons. Member elena-starling shows us some of her favorite picks from Noguchi. Which would you choose? #designerspotlight

    The classic free form sofa and ottoman was designed in 1946 by Isamu Noguchi. Our version of this sofa is lightly padded and gently contoured. It is ideal seating for public spaces or residential living spaces. The ottoman can be used as a foot rest, impromtu coffee table or simply to perch on. The rounded wooden legs of the ottoman compliment the curved design of the sofa perfectly. Our products are reproduced to the style of the original design.

  • Isamu Noguchi Noguchi® Free Form Sofa
    Foremost a sculptor, Isamu Noguchi softened the edge of 20th century modernism with his satisfyingly organic furniture designs. His sought-after classic Free Form Sofa and Ottoman (1946) have been newly reissued by the Vitra Design Museum in partnership with the Isamu Noguchi Foundation. A statement-making piece, the sofa has a grandly scaled, open form that accommodates multiple people. The design is lightly padded and provides a firm seating surface for public spaces and formal living rooms. The ottoman nestles into the sofa's curved form to function as a footrest, perch or table. Low, rounded beech wood legs lend a sense of animation. The upholstery colors each have coordinating legs: Black fabric with black painted legs; chartreuse fabric with walnut-stained legs; cream fabric with natural beech legs. The sofa and ottoman are part of a serial edition, and feature numbered plates of authenticity. Covers are removable for dry-cleaning. Made in Germany.
