#FurnitureHistoryFriday Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988) The American furniture designer, sculptor, and landscape architect lead a fascinating and complex life. Noguchi was born in Los Angeles, CA. His father was Yone Noguchi, a Japanese poet and his mother was Léonie Gilmour, an American writer. His father abandoned him and his mother several times throughout Noguchi's childhood. Noguchi and his mother lived in both the US and Japan in an effort to avoid anti-Japanese sentiment in the US. When he was 8, his mother let him design a garden for a house they were building in Japan. In 1918 Noguchi traveled with Dr. Edward Rumely back to America for high school. Noguchi changed his name to "Sam Gilmour" during this time. He attended Rumely's prestigious Interlaken School in La Porte, IN. In 1924 "Sam Gilmour" began to take classes at the Leonardo da Vinci Art School in NYC. 3 months later he held his first art exhibition and changed his name back to Isamu Noguchi. Following the Attack on Pearl Harbor, Noguchi became active trying to halt the internment of Japanese Americans. In 1942 Noguchi became the first and only voluntary internee. He found that he was not trusted by other internees and applied to leave. The FBI launched an investigation on Noguchi, accusing him of espionage and threatening him with deportation. The American Civil Liberties Union came to Noguchi's defense and stopped the investigation. In 1947 Noguchi meet Herman Miller and designed some furniture for his furniture company. Noguchi also began designing furniture and lamps for Knoll. He also began to design public spaces. Noguchi continued to travel, sculpt, and design for the rest of his life. In 1987 Noguchi won the the National Medal of Arts. Upon his death in 1988 his obituary in the New York Times read "a versatile and prolific sculptor whose earthy stones and meditative gardens bridging East and West have become landmarks of 20th-century art". #Noguchi #furnituredesign #sculpture #IsamuNoguchi
