Vitra Noguchi Freeform Ottoman
Freeform Ottoman by Isamu Noguchi for Vitra
The fluidity of Noguchi's design vocabulary finds expression in the Freeform Sofa and Ottoman: it is entirely different from other designs of the same period, appearing in combination with the Ottoman like an enlarged sculpture of flat, rounded river stones. The slender organic forms are graceful and flowing. Noguchi emphasizes the lightness of the elements with thin yet comfortable upholstery and a choice of cover fabrics in natural colors.
The Freeform Sofa and companion Ottoman were produced around 1950 in limited numbers. Today, the few remaining pieces achieve record prices at auction. Since 2002, the group has been produced by the Vitra Design Museum as a fully authentic re-edition.
