Interesting Facts:

  • "Everything is sculpture” - Noguchi

 

  • "I went to Hawaii in 1939 to do an advertisement. As a result of this, I had met (a) the furniture designer, who had asked me to do a coffee table for him. I designed a small model in plastic and heard no further before I went west." (He interned in an Arizona concentration camp during World War II. During his time there, he was surprised to see a variation of the small model table he had done published as an advertisement for the designer.)
"When, on my return, I remonstrated, he said anybody could make a three-legged table… In revenge, I made my own variant of my own table."
