Vitra Design Black Aluminum Prismatic Side Table from Isamu Noguchi. Noguchi's modernist "Prismatic Table" is based on purely geometric forms. This novel three-legged side table with its hexagonal tabletop is made of folded sheet aluminum and was inspired by traditional Japanese paper folding techniques. Here's a chance to bring an amazing piece of Modern Design into your home! So simple, yet so beautiful and timeless! The "Prismatic Table" was Noguchi's last piece of furniture. He designed it in 1957. The faceted aluminium piece was designed for Alcoa in black, but advertised as available with multicolor changeable elements. The table was part of Alcoa's forecast program to promote new uses for aluminium. Noguchi found inspiration for the Prismatic Table from Buckminster's Fuller Architecture.
Noguchi Prismatic Table Vitra Design Museum. The small Noguchi prismatic side table of 1957 was the last piece of furniture Isamu Noguchi designed. This creation coincides with his sculptures of bent and folded aluminum from the late 1950s. The faceted aluminum piece was designed for Alcoa as part of their advertising "Forecast program" to explore new uses for aluminum. Noguchi designed two versions. This one was presented in advertisements of the time as modular and multicolored. This is the first time it has ever been put into production and is manufactured by Vitra Design Museum.
