The Noguchi Table (1948) conceals nothing, revealing everythingabout the nature of simplicity. Two smoothly shaped pieces of solid wood interlock to form atripod that supports a thick glass tabletop. The base is available in black, walnut, natural cherryand white ash, the latter of which is finished with a process that arrests the wood in its freshly cutstate, resulting in a creamy white color that will not turn yellow over time. This is the authenticNoguchi Table by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. A stamp of authenticity. To signify its authenticity, this table etched with Noguchi's signature in two places: on thelongest edge of the glass tabletop and on a medallion underneath the base.
