3/4-inch thick glass top. Interlocking solid wood legs.
Overall: 15.75" h x 50" w x 36" d
A freeform, 3/4-inch plate-glass top rests on two curved, solid wood legs that interlock to form a tripod for self-stabilizing support.
When a piece of furniture is so distinctive and desired, copycats come out of the woodwork. To assure authenticity, the signature of Isamu Noguchi discreetly appears on the edge of the top and on a medallion on the underside of the base; under the medallion, his initials are stamped into the base.
For all those reasons and more, the Noguchi Table has become a major entry in the canon of modern interior design (you can read more about the Noguchi Table's design story), as opposed to being merely very popular with consumers. Magazines, critics, museums, and other designers have admired it for years, and its list of feature articles, critical appreciations, and museum showings speak for themselves in that regard. The ingenious nature of the design and the curvilinear, graceful sweep of its lines combine to form a functional package with limitless aesthetic appeal. And that appeal extends across generations, tastes, continents, and the work of other great designers.
The table was designed by Isamu Noguchi, who was a Japanese-American sculptor and designer. He left medical school to follow his passion for art and sculpture, and within only a few months he had found widespread success. It's no wonder; his art and his furniture are expert blends of peerless craftsmanship and intelligent, succinct design. In his career he designed radios, the first modern baby monitor, furniture, sculpture, and the sets for theater companies as respected and diverse as the New York Ballet. Briefly imprisoned in a Japanese internment camp during World War II, Noguchi overcame prejudice and a famous instance of intellectual theft (a rival designer stole his ideas for a table that became a big seller) to triumph as an American giant in the fields of interior and industrial design.

Herman Miller WarrantyGeneral Warranty
With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.
The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.
For normal cleaning, use products specifically designed for glass.
Wood & Veneer
This includes Herman Miller products finished with wood veneer or recut wood veneer, except the oiled Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman with Rosewood, Oiled Walnut, or Oiled Santos Palisander veneer unless specifically noted.
Dust regularly with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the directionof the wood grain.Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth.
Once a month
Clean the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner formulated for wood furniture. Wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth.
Twice a year
Apply a good quality furniture polish with a soft cloth. Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes. Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based.
Herman Miller veneers meet strict testing standards for resistance to wear, light, stains, water, and pressure. To reduce the risk of damage, take some precautions: Use coasters for glasses and mugs. If a glass top is added to the veneer surface, be sure it rests on felt pads. Don’t place a potted plant on a veneer surface unless it’s in a water-tight container or in a drip tray.Don’t let vinyl binders stay on a surface for very long. Use protective pads under equipment with “rubber” cushioning feet. Some chemical compounds used in the feet on office equipment, such as printers and monitor stands, may leave permanent stains or marks.
Minor repair of water rings, stains, and scratches
Rub the surface lightly in the direction of the wood grain using No. 000 steel wool. Apply a scratch-removing polish with a color and value that simulate the veneer. If the scratches are deep, consult a professional furniture refinisher.
Wood is susceptible to bruising and scratching from heavy office equipment, so we encourage a protective surface is placed underneath. Objects should be lifted instead of dragged across a surface. Protective pads should be used under items with a rough bottom, like pottery. Denting, caused by extreme pen pressure when writing, can also damage veneer. Use desk pads or some other protection where a lot of paperwork is done. Sunlight can damage veneer as well, so veneer surfaces should not be in direct sunlight. To help a surface age evenly, users can periodically move items on their desks so that the entire surface is exposed to an even amount of light over time. In addition to light, extremely high or low humidity is a damaging environmental factor. Herman Miller suggests maintaining a relative humidity of 35-65 percent.
