Welcome to Heal's
Japanese designer, Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) studied pre-medicine at Columbia University before progressing on to art studies at the Leonardo da Vinci Art School.
Noguchi subsequently became an academic sculptor and opened his first independent studio in 1927. An exhibition of Constantin Brancusi's work inspired Noguchi to change artistic direction, turning to modernism and abstract forms within his work. Throughout the designer's lifetime, Noguchi experimented with numerous art and design mediums including sculpture, lighting, furniture and architecture.
Noguchi's style is characterised by organic forms which in turn influenced the popular design aesthetics of the 1950s. The designer's glass topped table design for Herman Miller, along with others such as his designs for Akari Light Sculptures, are still being produced today by Vitra.
