One of the greatest 20th-century sculptors, Noguchi is known for his sculpture and public works, creating innovative parks, plazas, playgrounds, fountains, gardens, and stage sets as well as sculpture of stone, metal, wood, and clay, and several mass-produced lamps and furniture pieces, some of which are still manufactured and sold.
In 1947, Noguchi began a collaboration with the Herman Miller company, when he joined with George Nelson, Paul László and Charles Eames to produce a catalog containing what is often considered to be the most influential body of modern furniture ever produced, including the iconic Noguchi table which remains in production today.
