This table’s design is based on the evolution of a stool, specifically Isamu Noguchi’s rocking stool, designed for Knoll in 1953. Noguchi’s rocking stool was manufactured by Knoll in a variety of sizes for a year. The following year, the stool evolved into a children’s table and was named the ‘Cyclone’ table — designed to be a companion piece for the Bertoia wire children’s chair. Subsequently, in 1957, at the suggestion of Hans Knoll, Noguchi’s children’s ‘Cyclone’ table became a full-sized dining table of the same name.
Modernica has been building the Cyclone dining table since 1996 and has built them without any compromise to the original specifications and construction. The table’s sculptural base consists of a column of chrome-plated steel wires set into a black powder-coated steel base. The table top is made with a choice of classic, natural or walnut stain on maple veneer with an exposed maple edge.
Additionally, Modernica offers the table top in a choice of black or white laminate with an exposed maple edge. And saving the best for last, Modernica has made the dining table available with a rich walnut veneer top and walnut veneer edge.
Made in California.
