About Isamu Noguchi
Isamu Noguchi (November 17, 1904 - December 30, 1988), was a prominent Japanese American artist and landscape architect. Throughout his life he struggled to see, alter, and recreate his natural surroundings.Known for his sculpture and public works, Noguchi's furniture work is often considered to be the most influential body of modern furniture.
Isamu Noguchi was born Isamu Gilmour in Los Angeles in 1904 to Leonie Gilmour, an Irish-American teacher and editor, and Yone Noguchi, a Japanese poet. He enrolled in Columbia University to study medicine, while at the same time taking sculpture classes on the Lower East Side. It wasn’t long before he realized that art, not medicine, was his true calling. Noguchi died in December of 1988 at the age of 84, but his influence continues to spread. His classic designs — notably his Akari lamps and his free-form coffee table — have never been more popular.
