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 Noguchi end 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 solid maple base. The top is available in either a white or black laminate with an exposed maple edge.
Additionally as an option, Modernica offers the end table with a rich walnut veneer top, walnut veneer edge and a matching solid North American walnut base.
