Vitra Freeform Sofa by Isamu Noguchi
Isamu Noguchi Freeform Sofa by Vitra. New official authorized version by the Noguchi estate, produced by Vitra Germany. Designed in 1946/48 by Japanese artist Isamu Noguchi. The sculptural quality of Noguchi's design vocabulary finds expression in the Freeform Sofa: 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 fluid and graceful. Noguchi emphasises 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. The sofa is suitable not only for use in living spaces, but also in lobbies, hotels and retail shops.
The Freeform Sofa is a creation by Japanese designer Isamu Noguchi. The works of Japanese American designer Isamu Noguchi are unusually multi-layered. The Vitra Design Museum has been producing re-editions of his designs in cooperation with the Isamu Noguchi Foundation, New York since 2002. Some of these are today part of the Vitra Collection.
