Conceived in 1953 as a rocking stool made of metal wire and wood, Noguchi's playful object was manufactured the following year in varying sizes, and later evolved into a table that became a companion piece to the Bertoia wire children's chair. At the suggestion of Hans Knoll, Noguchi's small table was enlarged to full size in 1957. Reintroduced by Knoll in collaboration with the Noguchi Foundation, the design is now meticulously produced from Noguchi's original drawings. The sculptural base consists of a column of chrome-plated steel wires set into a cast-iron, textured powder coat base.
In his truly ground-breaking collection from 1957, Eero Saarinen transformed executive seating into a fluid and sculptural form. A comfortable chair is a necessity and the Executive Chair is that and more. Perfect for your home office or anywhere else you might need extra seating.
