Isamu Noguchi (American, 1904-1988) for Knoll, USA. Cyclone Dining Table with a white laminate birch plywood tabletop and steel wire cyclone columns set into a cast iron black base. Superb mid-century modern design.
This design was initially conceived in 1953 as a rocking stool after Noguchi returned from a trip to Japan and was inspired by their use of plastic materials in furniture. However, Hans Knoll upon seeing the stool wanted the design to be adapted to a table as well. Noguchi switched out the plastic for wire and scaled the design to a size fitting for a table. The Bertoia wire chair, as the stool came to be known, was marketed alongside the Cyclone table until 1974. In 2003, the table was reintroduced and reproduced according to Noguchi's meticulous original drawings. Height: 28 5/8 in x diameter: 36 in.
