The New Reality: Noguchi and Aluminum in the 1950s
A presentation coinciding with the launch of a new edition of Prismatic Tables by Vitra
The Noguchi Museum Shop
October 18–November 5, 2023
The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum and Vitra are pleased to reintroduce Isamu Noguchi’s Prismatic Table in three new color variations, now available for sale worldwide. To coincide with the launch of the tables, The Noguchi Museum Shop presents The New Reality: Noguchi and Aluminum in the 1950s. This archival presentation will highlight the history of the folded aluminum table originally designed by Noguchi in 1957 and its lasting influence on his practice, incorporating ephemera from the Museum’s archive and three small folded aluminum works created by Noguchi at Edison Price’s studio in the late 1950s.
The new Prismatic Tables by Vitra will be available for order online (shop.noguchi.org) and for purchase in-store in the Museum Shop beginning on Wednesday, October 18. The tables are available in three different three-tone variations: light grey, grey, and dark grey. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
